    expanded copower:

    added an Idea-section, an Example-section, and a paragraph on copowers in higher category theory.

    Latest Revisions has copower changing 4 times in 2 seconds. What happened there?

    Corrected the statement about constructing all weighted limits from copowers and conical colimits: the conical colimits are not just ordinary SetSet-based colimits but still must have a VV-universal property (although the latter is automatic if powers also exist).

    The truly mysterious edited highlighted in #2, 3 years ago, removed (in the first of the four edits within 2 seconds) the link to tensored and cotensored category. I have reinstantiated that now. (The other three edits had no visible effect).

    re #5

    Did you take out the phrase about Kelly’s book because you were going to fix up the references but then forgot about it?

    The next two classes of examples are covered in Kelly’s book (see references).

    Thanks for catching this. Yes, I thought I had turned the reference into a hyperlink, but apparently I didn’t hit “submit” for the second step. Fixed now.

    Also I have now given the examples their Examples-environments and lumped together those pertaining to that Kelly reference to one example here.

    Change notation for copower to \cdot, which appears to be the most common convention.

    Fixed the typo in the main definition.

    (Which had been sitting there for years :-/ This entry deserves to be polished up further, maybe later…)
