Publication# Towards an (∞,2)-category of homotopy coherent monads in an ∞-cosmos

Abstract

This thesis is part of a program initiated by Riehl and Verity to study the category theory of (infinity,1)-categories in a model-independent way. They showed that most models of (infinity,1)-categories form an infinity-cosmos K, which is essentially a category enriched in quasi-categories with some additional structure reminiscent of a category of fibrant objects. Riehl and Verity showed that it is possible to formulate the category theory of (infinity,1)-categories directly with infinity-cosmos axioms. This should also help organize the category theory of (infinity,1)-categories with structure. Given a category K enriched in quasi-categories, we build via a nerve construction a stratified simplicial set N_Mnd(K) whose objects are homotopy coherent monads in K. If two infinity-cosmoi are weakly equivalent, their respective stratified simplicial sets of homotopy coherent monads are also equivalent. We also provide an (infinity,2)-category Adj_r(K) whose objects are homotopy coherent adjunctions in K, that we use to classify the 1-simplices of N_Mnd(K) up to homotopy.

Quasi-category

In mathematics, more specifically , a quasi-category (also called quasicategory, weak Kan complex, inner Kan complex, infinity category, ∞-category, Boardman complex, quategory) is a generalization of the notion of a . The study of such generalizations is known as . Quasi-categories were introduced by . André Joyal has much advanced the study of quasi-categories showing that most of the usual basic and some of the advanced notions and theorems have their analogues for quasi-categories.

Higher category theory

In mathematics, higher category theory is the part of at a higher order, which means that some equalities are replaced by explicit arrows in order to be able to explicitly study the structure behind those equalities. Higher category theory is often applied in algebraic topology (especially in homotopy theory), where one studies algebraic invariants of spaces, such as their fundamental . An ordinary has and morphisms, which are called 1-morphisms in the context of higher category theory.

Category (mathematics)

In mathematics, a category (sometimes called an abstract category to distinguish it from a ) is a collection of "objects" that are linked by "arrows". A category has two basic properties: the ability to compose the arrows associatively and the existence of an identity arrow for each object. A simple example is the , whose objects are sets and whose arrows are functions. is a branch of mathematics that seeks to generalize all of mathematics in terms of categories, independent of what their objects and arrows represent.

We extend the group-theoretic notion of conditional flatness for a localization functor to any pointed category, and investigate it in the context of homological categories and of semi-abelian categories. In the presence of functorial fiberwise localizatio ...

In this thesis, we apply cochain complexes as an algebraic model of space in a diverse range of mathematical and scientific settings. We begin with an algebraic-discrete Morse theory model of auto-encoding cochain data, connecting the homotopy theory of d ...
