  1. I guess it should read as “one defines the (Serre) quotient category A/TA/T as the one having the same objects as AA and ….” and not ” … same objects as TT… ” Similarily in the line following the line mentioned here.

  2. Thanks! Nice that this person kindly indicated their changes via the new tool; since they are anonymous, they probably would not have left a message at the nForum otherwise. This was the initial motivation for adding the annoucement mechanism, so good to see that it may be beginning to help.

  3. I also see that there are some bugs in Instiki’s mechanism for showing the diff. I can try to look at that at some point.

    I edited a couple of pages a couple of days ago, ticked the box for announcer and the change were not announced. Maybe my nnForum name zskoda is not the same at the nnLab contributor signature Zoran Škoda or something ? What happens when the name is not matching, can it be manually related in some database ?

    Hi Zoran, I checked the logs, and the tool is correctly finding your nForum user. However, the logs show that all of your edits were marked as ’trivial’: I see edits to invariant differential form, Hausdorff series, and Runge-Kutta method on the 3rd of April, between 13:08 UTC and 15:05 UTC, but all are marked as trivial. Are you sure that you ticked to announce the entries? If you are sure, could you try an edit now (maybe just find a typo somewhere, or make some trivial change) where you click to announce?

    For the record, the algorithm that is used to associate an nForum user to an nLab author is described in #26 here. To summarise: two generic methods are attempted to make the association, and if this does not work, then a file which l edit manually to define author-user correspondences is checked. So far I’ve added Todd and David C to that list :-). If there is still no match, then the name of the author is included in the announcement text.

    Hm. I think I understand what happened. I have ticked the box as nontrivial and wrote some comments. In later edits the same afternoon I did not want to make new announcements and I ticked a box that those later edits were trivial. But probably 30 minutes did not pass and the previous announcement did not pass through. This was before we discussed the delays extensively and I was not aware that the announcement was already not immediate.

  4. Fixes typo in the definition of Serre quotient category.

    The definition of a thick subcategory of a triangulated category at the beginning of the page doesn't look right. I'm not even sure what meaning "closed under extensions" could have for a subcategory of a triangulated category that would not be automatic for a triangulated subcategory.

    Thanks for the alert.

    I have now tried to briefly fix the first two paragraphs – stating closure under direct summands for thick triangulated subcategories and stating a definition of thick subcatgeories of abelian categories that I see in the literature.

    I see there is still something weird going on as it goes to the third paragraph. I haven’t touched that, but left a warning.

    (I didn’t write this stuff, nor am I expert on it, and, most importantly, I am about to leave for vacation with no time left to dig into it. If you are expert and want to do the community a favour, please feel invited to bring the entry into better shape.)

    Recently added definition that thick subcategory in an abelian category is closed “under direct summands, kernels of epis, cokernels of monos and extensions” is in the abelian categories precisely the same as it was/is stated below/before: closed under subobjects, quotients and extensions (or packed differently: topologizing+closed under extensions). Direct summands is a superfluous condition as it is included both under subobjects and under quotients.

    I have split the definition part into two sections: one for derived and one for abelian context, as it should be as the definitions quite differ.
