created stub for simplicial manifold
added the statement that simplicial manifolds are cofibrant in and that every cofibrant object there is weakly equivalent to a simplicial manifold.
(In view of the tower of classical literature on simplicial manifolds, this is a useful statement to keep in mind...)
corrected the very last sentence at simplicial manifold in the light of my recent discussion with Mike at model structure on simplicial presheaves on cofibrant objecs in the local projective model structure.
It's still a noteworthy statement, though: every oo-stack on Diff may be presented by a simplicial manifold.
What do you have in mind?
I was thinking of Dugger's cofibrant replacement functor, which works generally. Its existence shows that every simplicial presheaf in the projective model structure is weakly equivalent to one that is degreewise a coproduct of representables.
There is some discussion behind the scenes, by the way, that statements like this ensure that models like Chris Schommer-Pries' recent finite dim model of the string 2-group have to exist. But of course one should be aware that the general statement by Dugger only ensures that models consisting of possibly uncoutable disjoint unions of manifolds of finite but arbitrary high dimension exist.
