There should be some Isbell duality connection with Osmond’s ideas, no?

Added a section on multi-monads
Any functor $U: A\to B$ which has a left multi-adjoint generates a multi-monad on $B$. Categories $A$ which can be reconstructed from this multi-monad are called multi-monadic (Diers 80).
Multi-monadic categories on $Set$ can be characterized in the following way: they are regular, with connected limits, with coequalizers of coequalizable pairs, their equivalence relations are effective, their forgetful functors preserve coequalizers of equivalence relations and reflect isomorphisms. Unlike monadic categories they need not have products. Examples include local rings, fields, inner spaces, locally compact spaces, locally compact groups, and complete ordered sets. (Diers 80, p.153)
Seems like important ideas, these ’multi-’ constructs. Why do we hear so little about them?
How about some right multi-adjoints and multi-comonads - any nice cases?
