### Complete the following sequence: point, triangle, octahedron, . . . in a dg-category

Let $\mathcal C$ be a pre-triangulated dg-category (or a stable $\infty$-category, if you wish). An object $X$ in $\mathcal C$ gives a "point": $$X$$ A morphism $X\xrightarrow f Y$ in $\mathcal C$ ...

### Is there an obstruction which classifies “quasi-isomorphism but not chain equivalence”?

Fix a ring $R$ and let $C_\bullet$, $D_\bullet$ be (possibly unbounded) chain complexes of $R$-modules. Assume that $f_\bullet:C_\bullet \to D_\bullet$ is a quasi-isomorphism: that is to say, $f$ is a ...

### Sign problem for the shift functor on DG modules

Let $\mathcal{A}$ be a Differential graded $k$ category, where $k$ is a commutative ring. I want to extend the shift functor $[1]$ on chain complexes to dg modules over $\mathcal{A}$. Now a right dg ...

### Can we use unparameterized chains to calculate singular homology?

Most models of singular chains on a topological space $X$ use maps from some particular collection of "nice" objects, such as the standard simplices $\Delta^n$, the standard cubes $[0,1]^n$, etc. ...

### Are totally degenerate chains null-homologous?

Let $X$ be a CW complex. Suppose $\gamma\in C_n(X)$ is a cycle which is a sum of maps $\sigma:\Delta^n\to X$ which factor as $\Delta^n\to\mathbb R^{n-1}\to X$. Does it follow that $\gamma$ is null-...

### Singular chains generated by manifolds with corners — does it really work?

Usually we define singular homology via the complex of singular chains: $$C_\ast(X)=\bigoplus_{n\geq 0}\mathbb Z\langle\sigma:\Delta^n\to X\rangle$$ where the right hand side denotes the free abelian ...

### Is there a practical criterion to determine whether the limit of a diagram of real chain complexes is also a homotopy limit?

Consider a diagram D: I→ChR of real connective chain complexes. In the example I have in mind all chain complexes are concentrated in some fixed degree n. There is a canonical map lim D → holim D ...

### Brutal truncation of indecomposable complexes

Let $P^{\bullet} = (P^i, d^i)_{i\leq 0}$ be an indecomposable object in category of complexes bounded above, where each $P_i$ is a finitely generated projective module over an finite dimensional ...

### pure sub-complexes of exact subcomplexes

In https://www.google.com/#q=tensor+product+of+complexes%2Benochs a new tensor product of complexes is defined which characterizes flatness in the category of complexes of $R$-modules. That is, a ...

### Is it possible to take “limits up to homotopy”?

Before I begin, an apology: it's been a while since I've done much analysis, so I might be misusing (or just missing) terminology. I have a chain complex $(V_\bullet,\partial)$ of topological vector ...

### Cisinski-Deglise model structure on chain complexes

Let $\newcommand{\A}{\mathscr{A}}\A$ be a grothendieck abelian category. In their paper "Local and stable homological algebra in grothendieck abelian categories", Cisinski and Déglise define the ...

### Dold-Kan preserves weak equivalences and fibrations

It's well known that Dold-Kan correspondence is an isomorphism between simplicial vector spaces and non-negative chain complexes of vector spaces. Moreover, weak equivalences and fibrations are ...

### Resolutions of unbounded complexes and homotopy (co)limits.

I want to understand once and for all what the resolution of an unbounded complex is. I've been trying to read 'Homotopy limits in triangulated categories' by Marcel Bokstedt and Amnon Neeman and can'...

### Is there a notion of a chain complex with corners?

Roughly speaking, algebraic topology works by reducing questions about topological objects such as manifolds and cell to questions about chain complexes. On the topological side, although in the PL ...

### Reference Request: The Categorification of $\mathbb{Z}$ as cochain complexes of vector spaces

Just as the fact that a categorification of $\mathbb{N}$ is the category of finite dimensional vector spaces, a categorification of $\mathbb{Z}$ (in my mind) is the category of bounded cochain ...

### On the difference between a projective chain complex and a level-wise projective chain complex

Let R be an associative ring with a unit, and consider the standard projective model structure of non-negatively graded (left) R-module, $Ch_R$. A map $f:M\to N$ in $Ch_R$ is a weak equivalence if it ...

There is a functor from bicomplexes to chain complexes sending a bicomplex to its associated total chain complex. Does this functor have a left adjoint, and if so, what is it?

### Proving homotopy invariance of cellular homology by constructing a chain homotopy

I'm trying to follow an argument in Lück's "Algebraische Topologie: Homologie und Mannigfaltigkeiten" (to which there apparently doesn't exist an english translation). The aim is to check homotopy ...
