expanded concrete sheaf: added the precise definition and some important properties.

I have added to concrete sheaf a subsection Slice topos over a concrete object with some observations.

Not sure how useful this is.

mention well-pointedness and concrete categories. Hope I got this right.

Removed the link to well-pointedness; I think the latter term is usually only used for toposes.

Hi, Actually the term is quite widely used for ccc’s, at least in CS, e.g. in

Okay; but in that case the link shouldn’t go to well-pointed topos.

I see. But the well-pointed topos page already mentions some generalizations (pretoposes, coherent categories). I thought there might be an external/internal theorem for concrete quasitoposes generalizing the theorem for well-pointed toposes. Although I can't find a reference so maybe there isn't in general?

True, but an arbitrary ccc seems to me like a much further step than a pretopos. And the page points out that the “correct” definition differs depending on what kind of category we’re talking about. In particular, it suggests that for a finite-limit category we should ask that $1$ be a strong generator, not just a generator as it is for a concrete category.

I haven’t thought about well-pointed quasitoposes at all.
