    Started this page. No doubt it could be more elegant.

    Added something on the map from adjoints in KK to monafs in KK.

    I suppose we ought also to have a page on the double category of adjunctions that figures in the mate correspondence.

    I see at mate it speaks about the double category, Adj(K)Adj(K). But this is the notation I just used for the 2-category of adjunctions in KK.

    Yes, well, in a latex paper I would use two different fonts for the “AdjAdj”.

    Re #5, can’t we have two fonts here? Which should they be?

    I would probably write 𝒜dj(K)\mathcal{A}\mathit{dj}(K) for the 2-category and 𝔸dj(K)\mathbb{A}\mathsf{dj}(K) for the double category. That doesn’t work in a page title, though.

    The inclusion of MndMnd, the free monad, in AdjAdj induces a 2-functor from the 2-category of adjunctions in KK to the 2-category of monads in KK.

    This doesn’t make sense to me. Adj(K)Adj(K) is not the functor 2-category [Adj,K][Adj,K] – as it says earlier on the page, the objects of Adj(K)Adj(K) are the objects of KK while its morphisms are the functors AdjKAdj\to K – so I don’t see any “precomposition” functor going on.

    Have I garbled the end of The free adjunction?

    Yes, their “2-category of adjunctions” is by definition [Adj,K][Adj,K], not the 2-category we’re calling Adj(K)Adj(K) on this page. Perhaps this page should mention both, since this confusion seems likely to be common.

    Disambiguate between the two meanings of “2-category of adjunctions”

    Add reference to The free adjunction.
