    the standard bar complex of a bimodule in homological algebra is a special case of the bar construction of an algebra over a monad. I have added that as an example to bar construction.

    I also added the crucial remark (taken from Ginzburg’s lecture notes) that this is where the term “bar” originates from in the first place: the original authors used to write the elements in the bar complex using a notaiton with lots of vertical bars (!).

    (That’s a bad undescriptive choice of terminoiogy. But still not as bad as calling something a “triple”. So we have no reason to complain. ;-)

    If I see correctly, all occurences of “Δ\Delta” at bar construction refer to the augmented simplex category, which elsewhere is denoted “Δ +\Delta_+” or “Δ a\Delta_a”. I vote for changing the notation to one of these notations. While it is true that this will add a little bit of notational overhead to the entry, it serves to avoid confusion for all readers who happen to jump into the entry at some point and miss some paragraph at the beginning.

    I changed all the Δ\Delta’s in bar construction to Δ a\Delta_a’s (and introduced the notation at the exact point where augmented simplex category of mentioned).

    Seems to be a slight infelicity in wording if I am not mistaken. The author refers to a "comonad map" from P to |-|; I see that this is a natural transformation but I don't think (unless I am reading it incorrectly) this commutes with counit and comultiplication, as one sometimes uses comonad map or morphism of comonads to mean. Perhaps just natural transfomation?

    I agree; there’s a mistake there. I’ll fix it a bit later.

    My comment concerns this email
    rather than this page per se, but I assume it is ok to post here, as the page seems to be based on the content of the email.

    I do not understand the geometric intuition for why we can think of the left adjoint to the decalage comonad as a "cone" monad. I don't see how to prove that it agrees with the mapping cone when we pass to the geometric realization.

    I posted a more detailed version of this question to as well. Any help would be appreciated, or a reference where this is worked out in some detail.

    Thanks very much for your time!

    Hi Patrick,

    welcome to the nnLab!

    Just to say that to make your comments come out with intended formatting, choose “Mardown+Itex” below the edit box. Then things here work mostly as on the nLab itself.

    In particular, for quotation marks just type


    as usual, and for hyperlinks do

    Hi Patrick,

    Those notes were written a long time ago, and I didn’t know then that John would be posting them publicly (not that I really mind). You are right that the end result in TopTop (or in your favorite convenient category of spaces) should be called the mapping cylinder of the canonical quotient Xπ 0(X)X \to \pi_0(X), not the mapping cone. It amounts to a coproduct of cones, one for each connected component xπ 0(X)x \in \pi_0(X). Does this help, or do you need something more?
