    since it is an important example, I added a section action oo-groupoids also to fiber sequence

    Thanks alot. But what I was having in mind is to have the data of action quasicategory directly in terms of Kan complex which is acting and the quasicategory which is acted upon. Doing abstract infinity limit involving an action into indirectly defined quasicategory of automorphisms is too far from practical use.

    Yeah, I know, it can be hard to compute. There are of course explicit tools to compute the Grothendieck construction (some mentioned at (infinity,1)-Grothendieck construction) but it can still be hard, sure.

    But I think for low categorical degree, one can handle it: that universal fibration ZnGrpdZ \to \infty nGrpd should be really just the fiber of the codomain fibration for nGrpdn Grpd over one of its legs, i.e. the pullbacl

    Z * nGrpd Δ[1] nGrpd nGrpd. \array{ Z &\to& * \\ \downarrow && \downarrow \\ n Grpd^{\Delta[1]} &\to& n Grpd \\ \downarrow \\ n Grpd } \,.

    And then the ordinary pullback of that should be the action nn-groupoid.

    So in other words I am saying that the action n-groupoid should be computed just as the homotopy pullback of the point

    V//G * BG Grpd \array{ V//G &\to& * \\ \downarrow && \downarrow \\ \mathbf{B}G &\to & \infty Grpd }

    using the tools described at homotopy pullback, only that instead of using the path object Grpd I\infty Grpd^I we use the arrow category Grpd Δ[1]\infty Grpd^{\Delta[1]}.

    So in other words: the thing should really be the lax (“comma”) pullback of the point, simply. I expect that this is really what Lurie’s universal fibration ZGrpdZ \to \infty Grpd achieves, but I have not found the time to really check this.

  1. added some comment about notation X//GX//G

    Deleted “available from Amazon” in description of Ronnie Brown’s book - this seems inappropriate. Restore it if you disagree!
