Does anyone know how to classify `track extensions' of a category. Baues and Wirsching do the Abelian case, but I have a non-Abelian case, so have a given category C and look for a 2-category C' with \pi_0 being C and in which 2-cells are invertible. (Same objects as C would be preferred.) Typically there should be a link with both non-Abelian group cohomology and the corresponding theory in sheaf theoretic form. Any ideas???
This is relevant for the cohomology of a category page as at present this is incomplete. Once I understand Baues-Wirsching (!!!!) I will add a bit to it about that theory. (This needs me to understand their `natural systems' and I am not yet sure I do (in fact I'm pretty sure I don't!)
Mamuka Jibladze was indeed explaining me few years ago a viewpoint on track extension as torsors in certain abtract setup, but I do not remember any details. I wish he would be accessible (Mamuka disappeared from mathematical community for a while, while trying his best in his administrative effort to help contribute to the reform of science and education in Republic of Georgia the right way; it is not clear when will this noble administrative burden free him back to the delight of mathematics community).
By the way, another useful viewpoint might be from a paper of Petar Pavešic with a look at the Baues-Wirsching cohomology from the point of view of Grothendieck construction.
@Zoran: Mamuka did write a paper with Pirashvili in which the torsor viewpoint was discussed. I will have to get a proper copy as I have only seen it on someone else's computer! Thanks for the info.
Then just ask Teimuraz about the article. He can still be reached :)
