    • stub for Sullivan construction (I got annoyed that the entry didn’t exist, but also don’t feel like doing it justice right now)

    • Because I want to point to it in a reply to the current discussion on the Category Theory Mailing list, I tried to brush up the entry k-tuply monoidal n-category a bit.

      In particular I

      • expanded the Idea section and added some statements that had been missing there;

      • reacted to the old query box discussion there and moved the query box to the very bottom;

      • added a section on k-tuply monoidal \infty-groupoids and \infty-stacks here.

      • added a section on k-tuply monoidal (n,1)(n,1)-categories here

    • I had started an article on AT category (which I originally mis-titled as “AT categories” – thank you Toby for fixing this!), but getting a little stuck here and there. I’m using the exchange between Freyd and Pratt on the categories mailing list (what else is there?) as my reference, but as is so often the case, Freyd’s discussion is a little too snappy and terse for me to follow it down to all the nitty-gritty details.

      There’s a minor point I’m having trouble verifying: that coproducts are disjoint (as a consequence of the AT axioms that Freyd had enunciated thus far where he made that claim, in his main post), particularly that the coprojections are monic. Presumably this isn’t too hard and I’m just being dense. A slightly less than minor point: I’m having trouble verifying Ab-enrichment of the category of type A objects. I believe Freyd as abelian-categories-guru implicitly – I don’t doubt him. Can anyone help?

    • polished a bit and expanded a bit at interval category (nothing deep, just so that it looks better)

    • Todd is helping me understand opposite categories beginning with FinSet opFinSet^{op} here.

      This discussion helped prompt some improvement of the page opposite category. When I look at that page now, I see the statement:

      The idea of noncommutative geometry is essentially to define a category of spaces as the opposite category of a category of algebras.

      This reminded me of a remark I made in the “Forward” to a paper I wrote back in 2002, so I’ve now itexified that “Foreward” here:

      Noncommutative Geometry and Stochastic Calculus

      By the way, this also suggests that the category FinSetFinSet is the category of spaces opposite to the category of finite Boolean algebras in the sense of space and quantity.

    • I noticed that recently Konrad Waldorf created a very nice article

      I went through it and added definition/theorem/proof-environments and lots of hyperlinks. Some of them are unsaturated. Maybe somebody feels inspired to create corresponding entries.

    • added the cosimplicial version of the statement to Eilenberg-Zilber theorem and included a reference that gives a proof

    • Eric wanted to know about closed functors, so we started a page. Probably somebody has written about these before, so references would be nice, if anybody knows them. (Google gives some hits that look promising, but I can’t read them now.)

    • I’ve done a bit of housekeeping at Froelicher space. I’ve split the page into pieces, putting each major section into its own section.

      (This will necessitate a little reference chasing at manifolds of mapping spaces, and I need to put in some redirects)

      I’ve put in a definition of curvaceous compactness at topological notions of Frölicher spaces. It works, but I’m not sure if it’s the right one yet.

    • I edited the entry enriched category theory a bit, in an attempt to eventually bring that into decent shape.

      I think we should eventually expand the list of related entries there and make it a floating toc.

    • It seems to me that despite so lenghty discussions and entry related to the mapping space-hm adjunction, only the ideal situations are treated (convenient categories of spaces). For this reason, I have created a new entry exponential law for spaces containing the conditions usually used in the category of ALL topological spaces, as well as few remarks about the pointed spaces.

    • Taking the advice that if I write something on the internet, it should be stuck on the n-Lab, I've converted my recent comments in the n-category cafe and some old blog posts into a new page on the relationship between categorification and groupoidification: categorification via groupoid schemes

    • Split off the mapping spaces stuff from local addition into manifolds of mapping spaces. Still plenty to do and things to check (particularly on the linear stuff, and particularly figuring out what “compact” means). Haven’t actually deleted the relevant bit from local addition yet. Also, haven’t put a table of contents at manifolds of mapping spaces since I’ve learnt that the best way to get Urs to read something is to not put a toc in.

    • Casson invariant count SU(2) local systems of integral homology spheres. Thomas considered its holomorphic counterpart which is ultimately related to counting BPS states on Calabi-Yau 3-folds.

      P.S. Hmm. Tags. New option. Great. Is there a list of tags ?
