    created a reference-entry Homotopy Limit Functors on Model Categories and Homotopical Categories and added pointers to it to a bunch of relevant entries

    and added finally the original references to simplicial localization – an entry that is woefully underdeveloped

    Crnković was a student of Witten, now unfortunately in finance. Please distinguish ć and č, č is in Russian names, Croatians have both č and ć which carry a weight of a distinct phonems. In my memory, K. Gawędzki wrote an article or review in which he said that the infinite-dimensional symplectic formalism from Crnković-Witten papers is, unlike the impression from the paper, in essence not new, and listed several papers from diverse authors preceding it which tackled the subject.

    Maybe these are some of the relevant references

    • J. Kijowski and W. Szczyrba [1976], A canonical structure for classical field theories, Commun. Math. Phys. 46, 183–206.

    • J. Kijowski and W. Tulczyjew [1979], A symplectic framework for field theories, Lecture Notes in Physics 107, Springer.

    Interesting. Do you need to check if these references are relevant or should we add them to the entry?

    (Did you mean to post this here in the thread on phase space?)

    I have moved the entry above to the correct address as you suggested. The above two references are relevant, at least I know that the author is relevant for the story and I read some of his papers in this vain, when graduate student in mid 1990s. On the other hand, I do not know how relevant is the longer list which I picked up at some blog which I linked at phase space. I have some deadlines today and tomorrow and should not go into opening the references.
