Do the algebras for a $\infty$-monad form a stable $\infty$-category?

I'm wondering if a monad $T$ on a stable $\infty$-category $\cal C$ has a stable $\infty$-category of algebras, provided $T$ preserves finite limits/colimits. Is this true? Edit: Is something ...

Associative Ring Spectra and Derived Completion

So, I was thinking before that this might have some nice, simple topos theoretic explanation, but Jacob disabused me of that notion. However, I'm still very interested in the following question: Is ...

Why $( \infty , n)$-categories are useful for?

I know that mathematicians are trying to construct adequate models for $( \infty, n)$-categories. Although, it seems to be an interesting task, I would like to know some explicity examples where this ...

$k$-Disk algebras versus $E_k$ algebras

Background: The little $k$-cubes operad is the $(\infty,1)$-operad defined by embedding disjoint unions of $k$-dimensional open cubes rectilinearly into one another, that is using maps ...

Is there an analog of the Barratt-Eccles construction for group-like E_∞-spaces and E_∞-ring spaces?

The Barratt-Eccles operad is an operad in simplicial sets that provides a particularly nice model of an E∞-operad; algebras in spaces over the Barratt-Eccles operad model E∞-spaces, i.e., homotopy ...

Nonunital $E_\infty$-rings

An elementary fact of algebra is that the category of nonunital commutative rings is equivalent to that of $\mathbb{Z}$-augmented unital commutative rings, the equivalence being given by forming ...

Power operations and Lambda-structure-like lifts of Frobenius in $E_\infty$-geometry?

A $\Lambda$-structure on a commutative ring $R$ is a ring endomorphism wich restricts to the $p$-Frobenius homomorphism after localizing at $(p)$. One may think of this as a "flow" $\Phi \colon ...

Derived Functors, Projection Formula and Base Change in the Derived $\infty$-Category

Let $X$ be a smooth stack and $\mathcal O_X$ the ring of smooth functions on $X$, i.e. for any smooth $M \to X$, $\mathcal O_X(M \to X) = C^\infty(M)$. In HigherAlgebra, the derived category ...

Topological quotient Hopf-algebras and “change-of-rings”

One way of constructing coalgebra objects in the homotopy theorist's category of spectra is to take the suspension spectrum of a space, with the diagonal providing a cocommutative comultiplication. ...

Connection on 3-bundle given as triplet of forms

A connection on a bundle is given locally by a Lie algebra-valued 1-form. Gauge transformations act in the usual way on the forms, and form a groupoid. A connection on a 2-bundle is given locally by ...

I think I have a category enriched in $(\infty,n-1)$-categories. Is it an $(\infty,n)$-category?

I have recently been thinking about some mathematical gadgetry that should together combine into an $(\infty,n)$-category (actually, an $(n,n)$-category) for $n = 4$. I don't know what axioms I need ...

understanding the definition of $\infty$-operad of module objects

I'm just trying to understand the following definition: Definition 3.3.3.8 in Higher Algebra by J. Lurie defines the $\infty$-operad of $O$-module objects, and says the following: Let $O^\otimes$ be ...

coends of stable infinity categories

Let $\mathcal{I}$ be a small ordinary category that I would like to think of as a diagram category. (If it helps: In my application $\mathcal{I}$ has only one object, i.e. comes from a monoid). Denote ...

Reference for a generalization of Γ-spaces to monoidal model categories

Γ-spaces were introduced by Segal in 1969 as models for what can be now described as commutative ∞-monoids and ∞-groups in cartesian symmetric monoidal ∞-categories, e.g., E_∞-spaces and connective ...

Can motivic E_∞-ring spectra be strictified to commutative motivic symmetric ring spectra?

Theorem 4.4.4.7 in Lurie's Higher Algebra (or Theorem 4.3.22 in DAG III) states (roughly speaking) that under certain conditions the ∞-category of commutative ∞-monoids in a given symmetric monoidal ...
