Verifying that $\epsilon^!$ is indeed the right adjoint of $\epsilon_*$ in the context of algebraic stacks

The question is about the last paragraph of Remark 12.4.3 in the book on algebraic stacks by Laumon and Moret-Bailly. Let $S$ be a (quasi-separated) scheme and let $\mathscr{X}$ be an algebraic stack ...

Proving the Special Adjoint Functor Theorem from the general Adjoint Functor Theorem

Often, when dealing with adjoint functor theorems, people go about proving each one separately, from first principles if you will (this is the course taken in MacLane). However, the names suggest ...

Do generalizations of adjoint functors, such as adjunctions in 2-categories, and multivariable adjunctions, have formulations in terms of something like universal morphisms?

I recently learned about two-variable adjunctions and multi-variable adjunctions, and about adjunctions in 2-categories. The nCatLab page on two-variable adjunctions talks about how to go from the ...

About cartesian closure of lax.functors categories

Let $\mathscr{A}$ a category and $F, G, H: \mathscr{A}^{op}\to CAT$ lax.functors. I wish find a possible "natural correspondence" between categories: $[F\times G, H]_O \leftrightarrow [F, H^G]_O$ ...
