    there is a bunch of things on my to-do list concerning write-up of stuff on the nLab in the big context of my “diff cohomology in an (oo,1)-topos”-writeup. I am lagging behind. I could use some more help!

    Of course you all are busy with your own stuff. But maybe there is a tiny chance somebody reads this here, maybe somebody who has been lurking all along, somebody who would enjoy helping out. I could say: I offer 60 reputation points! More seriously, this might be a chance to dip your feet into the water and join in to some interesting research. Here is the deal:

    I have a LaTeX writeup of a fairly long proof that establishes the weak equivalence of 3 different strict 2-group models of the string 2-group. It appears as the proof of prop. 5.25 on p. 94 of these notes here. The trouble (for me) is that this proof involves some diagrams that would require code-cogs for implementation on the nLab. I want these diagrams on the nLab!

    I have the LaTeX source code, of course, so it’s not much work to make this run on the nLab! But a bit of work. A tad more work than I find leisure for right now.

    Let me know if you are interested and I’ll send you the LaTeX source!

    Best, Urs

    A cheesy way to get figures on the nLab I’ve used before (e.g. cosmic cube) is to just capture a jpeg from a pdf. If you sent me a pdf, I could upload a figure or two to the nLab.

    Edit: Strike the “send me”. I see the link now.

    Okay, I see. By the way, these rectangular diagrams can be done by arrays’s fairly well. What i am after are those globular diagrams that appear in the proof of that proposition 5.25!
