    The scan of the writeup of Grothendieck’s 73 Buffalo lecture that we point to at functorial geometry is really badly done. Is there a better scan or any other re-typing available?

    This was brought up before, and I think one of the suggestions was to ask at the Categories mailing list. I agree it’s horrendous (don’t people care enough not to make such a mess of things?).

    This one here seems better.

    In fact, it’s obviously better, so I’ve replaced the link.

    Yes, thanks! That’s a relief.

    Zen Lin Low’s thesis is largely about the abstract general notions that are in Grothendieck’s lectures, with the benefit of a couple of decades hindsight.

    Not sure what you mean to imply, but Zhen Lin’s thesis is to linked from the entry.

    Nothing deep. I should have checked the entry before commenting :-/

    Going back to the entry functorial geometry it struck me that it didn’t really indicate that there is plenty of functorial geometry on the nnLab. So I went and expanded the line that used to read

    Of course, the above discussion generalizes to other types of geometry and even higher geometry.

    Of course, the above discussion generalizes to other types of geometry and even higher geometry, the general perspective being known as synthetic differential geometry or similar. For discussion of functorial (higher) differential geometry see for instance at smooth set (smooth ∞-groupoid), for discussion of functorial supergeometry see at super formal smooth set.

    10: wrong link, functorial geometry, not geomertry.

    Thanks. Fixed now.
