Contravariant Homotopy Theories and Quillen’s Theorem A

Abstract:
In this talk I will show how to construct a model structure on a locally presentable category with a suitable cylinder object such that the model structure behaves in a ”covariant” or ”contravariant” way with respect to the cylinder. Examples of such model structures include the covariant and contravariant model structures on simplicial sets and the cocartesian and cartesian model structures on marked simplicial sets modelling presheaves with values in ∞-groupoids and ∞-categories respectively.

The model structures come with an abstract notion of cofinal functor which recovers the usual definition of cofinal functor for ∞-categories when applied to the covariant and contravariant model structures on simplicial sets. When applied to presheaves valued in n-types, one obtains a version of Quillen’s Theorem A for n-categories.

Independence Relations in Abstract Elementary Categories

Abstract:
In Shelah's classification of first-order theories we classify theories using combinatorial properties. The most well-known class is that of stable theories, which are very well-behaved. Simple theories are more general, and then even more general are the NSOP_1 theories. We can characterise those classes by the existence of a certain independence relation. For example, in vector spaces such an independence relation comes from linear independence. Part of this characterisation is canonicity of the independence relation: there can be at most one nice enough independence relation in a theory.

Lieberman, Rosický and Vasey proved canonicity of stable-like independence relations in accessible categories. Inspired by this we introduce the framework of AECats (abstract elementary categories) and prove canonicity for simple-like and NSOP_1-like independence relations. This way we reconstruct part of the hierarchy that we have for first-order theories, but now in the very general category-theoretic setting.
