    I have hyperlinked combinatorial functors, since it seems wrong not to.

    Since the entry does’t exist yet, I’ll create a stub. Best if you touch it afterwards.

    I must confess that I’ve picked up the terminology from Lawvere without seeing much connection to combinatorics whose enumeration problems seem more naturally connected to bijections à la Joyal than injections.

    So the “combinatorial functors” are not combinatorial functors?

    In that case the link should be removed again and instead some clarification added.

    Ah, interesting reference you dug up there! That might in fact be the concept that Lawvere had in mind. I’ll check it out when occasion arises.

    I shuffled the link to combinatorial functor downwards and motivated the terminology with a quote from Lawvere. It looks to me that their strict combinatorial functors Set monoSet monoSet_{mono}\to Set_{mono} apparently studied by Myhill might correpond to objects in the Schanuel topos but we have to wait for an energetic model theorist to sort out the connection to the Crossley-Nerode concept.

    Added a further description of the objects bringing them closer to what might rightfully be called combinatorial functor.

    Thanks for looking into it. Though I’ll say that I find there remains room to clarify the remark on combinatorial functors (I admit it remains unclear to me, without digging into the references).

    Further in the vein of hyperlinking all technical terms (that’s what eventually constitutes the power of the wiki), I have added double square brackets to binomial coefficient and to name binding.

    I replaced your link with a (hopefully in this context more suggestive) link to falling factorial where I terminologically highlighted the binomial coefficients.

    To sort out the messy details of the Crossley-Nerode reference I count on the energetic model theorist.

    Slightly off-topic The category FinSet monoFinSet_{mono} appears under the name FIFI in the work of algebraists/representation theorists. Apparently it does a lot of cool things. I do wonder how any of these relate to the sheaves on it, though not terribly seriously.

  1. Re #10: Thanks for raising that! I think it would be good to make a page for this category, linked to from Schanuel topos, and mentioning this line of work in representation theory. No times myself just now though…!

    Minor clarification concerning [FinSet mono,Set][FinSet_mono,Set] added.

    How about generalizing to (,1)(\infty,1)-toposes !?

    I guess it still makes sense to define Sh ((Grpd fin) mono op,J at)Sh_\infty((\infty Grpd_{fin})_{mono}^{op},J_{at}) where (Grpd fin) mono(\infty Grpd_{fin})_{mono} is the (,1)(\infty, 1)-category of finite homotopy types with monomorphisms (aka (-1)-truncated morphisms) as morphisms and J atJ_{at} is generated by singletons.
