    I made a small change in idempotent adjunction. If I didn't miss something the words reflective and coreflective had to be replaced in one sentence.
    ---
    It then follows that F and G restrict to an equivalence of categories between the full images of F and of G (which are, respectively,

    a reflective subcategory of D and a coreflective subcategory of C)
    ->
    a coreflective subcategory of D and a reflective subcategory of C)
    ---

    I would even suggest to add:

    ---
    a coreflective subcategory of D and a reflective subcategory of C, both equivalent to the intermediate category E in 11)
    ---

    I don't know how to refer to 11. properly.

    Thanks, that seems right.

    I have made the typesetting of the factorization come out with the fully faithful functors displaying as hooked arrows. Also I have added mentioning that those full subcategories which are equivalent are he “EE”, from item 11.

    But something else is still wrong: the entry claims that an adjunction is idempotent when its induced monad and comonad is. This contradicts the statement at idempotent monad, which says that this is true (only) if one of the two adjoints is fully faithful.

    The hooks look nice.

    idempotent monad states correctly that there exits *an* adjunction where the right adjoint is ff, this is not necessarily the pair you started with.

    Oh, sure, right. Thanks.

  1. Added another example: comma and cocomma.

  2. Wasn’t sure if the comma construction was a left or right adjoint so I edited my example to no longer claim this.

    I have added this original reference for the characterization of idempotent adjunctions stated here:

    Also I have adjusted the formatting and cross-linking of the only reference which used to be offered (now here).

    I have given the list of examples more formatting and more hyperlinks.

    Then I have added the example

    TopSpAAAACdfflgDtplgDifflgSp TopSp \underoverset{ \underset{ Cdfflg }{\longrightarrow} }{ \overset{ Dtplg }{\longleftarrow} }{\phantom{AA}\bot\phantom{AA}} DifflgSp

    (by !include-ing it).

    The earliest textbook reference for the full characterization of idempotent adjunctions that I have found so far is still Grandis 2021. Is there an earlier textbook that states the Proposition in citable form?
