    stub for totalization

    Is this related to (one of the two) totalization(s) of a double complex in homological algebra and related totalizations in homological algebra ?

    Good point, the terminology is a bit inconclusive in some places of the literature, I think. I have added the following paragraph to totalization:

    Formally the dual to totalization is geometric realization: where totalization is the end over a powering with Δ\Delta, realization is the coend over the tensoring.

    But various other operations carry names similar to “totalization”. For instance a total chain complex is related under Dold-Kan correspondence to the diagonal of a bisimplicial set – see Eilenberg-Zilber theorem. As discussed at bisimplicial set, this is weakly homotopy equivalent to the operation that is often called TotTot and called the total simplicial set of a bisimplicial set.

    Whereas the diagonal of a bisimplicial set is actually its geometric realization, considered as a simplicial object in sSet!

    reviews the constructon of the totalization of a cosimplicial DGLA in Section 3.4 (defined as certain colimit) and “prove that isomorphism classes of descent data of a cosimplicial DGLA are in one-to-one correspondence with isomorphism classes of Maurer–Cartan elements of its totalization”.

    added statement and pointer to proof of the fact that the totalization, in the traditional sense, is a model for the homotopy limit over the cosimplicial objects, if the latter is Reedy fibrant.

    also added brief mentioning of Bousfield-Kan spectral sequence and Eilenberg-Moore spectral sequence.

    (phew, that entry had been sitting there all the years lacking most of the homotopy theoretic information…)

  1. Previous wording somewhat dismissive.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I have added date and author-link (here).

    I can’t recall why I wrote “some kind of notes” back in 2011, when this was the first and only reference for the entry, but I am sure it was not meant dismissively. Probably a combination of thinking this “might be lecture notes or might be a preprint, hard to tell” mixed with bad English skills.
