    I happened to notice today that there are problems with the proof of Lemma 1. Unfortunately, I do not have time to fix this myself, but I thought I’d let you know.

    It can be fixed as follows.

    1) Define X^\hat{X} to be the pullback of f×id:X×YY×Yf \times id : X \times Y \rightarrow Y \times Y and the map Y IY×YY^{I} \rightarrow Y \times Y which is currently denoted (I would not use this notation myself!) by (d 0,d 1)(d_0,d_1).

    2) The required map p:ZYp : Z \rightarrow Y is the composite of the map ZX×YZ \rightarrow X \times Y which is part of the pullback of 1), and the projection map X×YYX \times Y \rightarrow Y.

    3) The required fibration ZXZ \rightarrow X arises in the same way as in 2), but composing with the the other projection map instead,

    4) The required map XZX \rightarrow Z arises via the universal property of the pullback by using the map fc:XY If \circ c : X \rightarrow Y^I, where cc is the map YY IY \rightarrow Y^I appearing in the factorisation which defines Y IY^I, and the map id×f:XX×Yid \times f : X \rightarrow X \times Y.

    Okay, so Chrome messes up the preview but is fine once the post is posted. Probably due to the interaction of javascripts between inserting the preview and re-running MathJaX on the page.

    For my own future reference, the solution would appear to be documented here.

    Also, the initial post in this thread is a copy of a post by Richard Williamson who reported the issue (so the “I” is not me but him!).
