    I’ll be preparing here notes for my lectures Categories and Toposes (schreiber), later this month.

    In Definition 2.14, clause 3, isn’t that monoidal product rather than cartesian product?

    Thanks for catching this, fixed now.

    In fact, large parts of text still need to be transferred from TopTop-enrichment to arbitrary 𝒱\mathcal{V}-enrichment.

    finally made it to the discussion of “solid model toposes” in the last section (here). This should set the scope. Still need to expand and polish some bits, but maybe not add any further sections.

    Is it normal for this page to take a few minutes to load? I have noticed similar performance issues with the stable homotopy articles too. Would it possible for long nlab articles to have pages? I am on a chromebook using google chrome.
  1. It depends what you mean by load. If you mean that all the MathJax is finished, then yes, it takes forever. If you mean that the page is loaded apart from the MathJax, then no, it is not normal after the rendering changes made a couple of months ago; it takes a while only the very first time it is loaded after an edit (this generates the cache). Eventually the latter will be changed as well, so that the loading is always more or less immediate (apart from MathJax).

  2. Pagination could be an interesting idea, though, for the future.

    With Firefox it works pleasantly. Firefox (and its derivatives) is the only browser left that has native MathML support, since all other browsers abondened support for it some years ago. That’s what makes the difference in rendering the maths.

    I keep thinking we should have a general announcement on nnLab pages, that recommends Firefox to the reader.

    And we should pray that the Mozillas never ever decide to remove their MathML support, too.

    Maybe you’re right after all! Maybe others can share their opinion on this; if enough think it a good idea, I will implement it.

    That’s [i.e. MathML is] what makes the difference in rendering the maths.

    I would say that that’s not quite true. What makes MathJax slow is only that it is client side, i.e. done in the user’s browser, it does not have to do with the use of MathML. What we really need, in my opinion, is a good server side way to produce HTML/CSS for mathematics directly, without using MathML. I am making some steps towards this myself, but of course it is a significant undertaking.

    I have tried firefox and it seems to be running much faster, the bottleneck seems to be the server response time (which is fine). I have also read that Safari supports mathml and its only chrome that stopped support. They deemed it unsuportted and risky which could include security issues. Luckily for us one of the engineers say that MathJax works just fine for the equations and we should take his word.

    Also on an unrelated note: are my forum posts padded or not? I have tried from another browser and it seems that everybody elses posts are padded but mine.
  3. Hi Ali, your forum posts look the same to me as everyone else’s. Is it possible for you to share a screenshot? Maybe via Dropbox or something, if you use that.

    Alizter, the reason your forum posts are not “padded” is that you’ve chosen the “Text” markup option rather than the default “Markdown+Itex” option: check the radio buttons underneath the text entry box.

    The end of proposition 1.66 (the case when C is fully faithful)
    says that CL is left adjoint to CR, which is correct.

    But Lemma 1.68 (the same case of fully faithful C)
    suddenly claims that CR is left adjoint to CL,
    which seems wrong to me.

    This wrong claim is then repeated in several places,
    including Proposition 1.69.

    And, furthermore, in formula (29), the functor Γ should probably be replaced by R.

    And in Definition 1.72 the top left corner should probably be □_2, not □_1. And the 3 occurrences of "box" should probably read □.

    Thanks for catching typos!

    I have now fixed all the instances that you mentioned explicitly.

    For your “and in several places” I scrolled around a little and didn’t see any further instances right away. I am sure there are, and I can try to hunt them down later.

    Definition 1.9 has a typo. The inverse should be from Y to X instead of Y to Y.
