    added to simplicial object a section on the canonical simplicial enrichment and tensoring of D Δ opD^{\Delta^{op}} for DD having colimits and limits.

    I just noticed this in simplicial object as the Idea:

    A simplicial object XX in a category CC is a collection {X n} n\{X_n\}_{n \in \mathbb{N}} of objects in CC that behave as if X nX_n were an nn-dimensional simplex internal to CC.

    As someone who works a lot with simplicial objects this does not correspond to my idea of a simplicial object and quite frankly I do not understand the meaning of ‘simplex internal to CC’. Does anyone else feel like I do? I think that a couple of instances of simplcial objects would give the idea better.

    I have modified the sentence. But if anyone has more leisure for it than I currently do, feel free to have a go at it.

    Thanks that is already much better. I have added in a bit more. I am wondering if there is s specific example that is general enough to be ’of use’ for a large number of people (other than simplicial sets). I will add one slightly later if I can.

    The entry lists a bunch of Examples. Are you looking for something else?

    I am wondering if there should be a specific example (e.g. the smooth singular complex of a Lie group can be considered in several settings as giving a simplicial group, simplicial topological group, etc. but that example fits better elsewhere). It may not be needed as there are other examples in other entries. Perhaps ‘If you want a specific example of this type of construction look at …’ might be worth putting somewhere. I am in two minds about it.

    Add a remark about geometric realization and the fact that it is a simplicial functor.
