### Homotopy category of groupoids

The nlab Ho(Cat) page says: morphisms in the homotopy category of groupoids $Ho(Gpd)$, have two equivalent description:
iso-classes of functors.
formally invert equivalence functors (i.e. ...

### How do you define the strict infinity groupoids in Homotopy Type Theory?

In the setting of Homotopy Type Theory, how would you construct $\mathrm{isStrict} : U \rightarrow U$ which is inhabited exactly when the first type is (equivalent to?) a strict $\infty$-groupoid?
...

### reference request for essential equivalence of top. groupoids

Let $G$ and $H$ be two topological groupoids. Recall that a morphism $F \colon H \to G$ is called an essential equivalence, if
the map $t \circ \pi_1 \colon G_1 \times_{G_0} H_0 \to G_0$ is an open ...

### Examples of Simplicial Groupoids in Nature

For me, a simplicial groupoid is a simplicial object in ${\mathbf{Grpd}}$. I am more general than Goerss-Jardine in this definition.
Do you have examples simplicial groupoids that occur in nature? ...

### Groupoid actions on spaces

The action of a group $G$ on a topological space $X$ can be viewed as a functor $F: G \to \mathcal{Top}$ with $F(*)=X$. (Here I'm viewing a group as a category with one object, $ * $, and the ...

### Geometric interpretation of the fundamental groupoid

Motivation
The common functors from topological spaces to other categories have geometric interpretations. For example, the fundamental group is how loops behave in the space, and higher homotopy ...
