### (Co-)Limits and fibrations of DG-Categories?

First of all, let me see if i got the 1-categorical version right: Let $\mathcal F:C\to Cat$ be a (pseudo-) functor. The 2-colimit $\mathrm{colim}_C\mathcal F$ is then given by the grothendieck ...

### Contractibility of a poset-indexed colimit

Let $(X,\leq)$ be a poset with distinguished element $p$, and let $P'$ be the poset of "finite chains which weakly descend to $p$" given by all $\sigma = (x_0 \geq x_1 \geq \cdots \geq x_k \geq p)$ ...

### Constructing pointwise Kan extensions as adjoints to some functor

Background I'm working on formalizing some category theory in Coq at https://bitbucket.org/JasonGross/catdb. Currently, I'm in the process of formalizing pointwise Kan extensions. Partly because ...

### Is it possible to assume that an étale neighborhood is connected?

I am new to étale topology (though I've seen Grothendieck's sites before). Let $S:=\mathcal{O}^\textrm{sh}_{X,x}$ be the strict local ring of a point $x$ of a scheme $X=\operatorname{Spec}R$ (over a ...

### Reference request: colimits of locally presentable categories

Consider the 2-category of locally presentable categories, cocontinuous functors, and natural transformations. I believe that this 2-category is 2-cocomplete in the sense of containing all small ...

### Which reflexive coequalizer diagrams are projectively cofibrant?

Consider the walking reflexive pair category W, which consists of two objects 0 and 1 and three generating morphisms f: 0→1, g: 0→1, and h: 1→0 satisfying the relation fh=gh=id₁. Consider the ...

### Inverse limits of schemes and open subsets

Let $R$ be a discrete valuation ring, $\{A_i\}_{i \in I}$ be a direct system of $R$-algebras and $A$ the limit of the system. Let $X$ be a noetherian projective scheme over $\mathrm{Spec}(R)$. ...

### Colimit of an etale diagram of schemes

It is known that the category of schemes is not cocomplete (e.g. see this question: Colimits of schemes). However, do diagrams of schemes for which every morphism is etale have colimits? More ...

### How does one compute a colimit of monoidal categories?

The question is in the title. I'm also happy to get answers about (your favorite adjective) monoidal categories. Here's a guess: In order to compute a colimit of monoids we can push everything down ...

### Pre-Order induced by continuous functions

I'm an newbie in category theory, but I want use it to solve a pre-order question I encountered in my research: Let $X$ be a convex&compact subset of $\mathbb{R}^n$. $f,g: X \rightarrow [0,1]$ ...
Let $\mathcal{C}$ be a category and $h_-: \mathcal{C} \to \mathrm{Set}^{\mathcal{C}^{op}}$ be the Yoneda embedding. Let $\mathcal{A}$ be a cocomplete category and $F: \mathcal{C} \to \mathcal{A}$ a ...
