### Yoneda embeddings of stable model categories; composition with Bousfield localizations

For a stable model category $C$ and a set $M$ of object of it I would like to construct a natural functor from $C$ to some stable 'category of functors' on $M$. I suspect that the 'natural' question ...

### Cotorsion theory and its relative homology

Let (F(R), Cot(R)) be a cotorsion theory, Such that F(R) is the class of flat R-modules and Cot(R) the cotorsion modules. Why this is true that, For $ N\in Cot(R) $,
$ \text{Ext}_{F(R)}^i(M, N)\cong ...

### The First Homology Group of Configuration Space and Knot Theory

Let $\pi_{1}: \text{Top}^* \rightarrow \text{Grp}$ denote the fundamental group functor and let $H_{1}: \text{Top}^* \rightarrow \text{Grp}$ denote the first homology group functor. We can then define ...

### Characterization of the sequences in the equivalence classe of the zero element in higher extension groups

Hello,
I am looking for a characterization of the long exact sequences in the equivalence classe of the zero element (for the Baer sum) in $Ext^n(U,V)$ for $n>1$.
If $n=1$, then these are the ...

### Is there a categorification of topological K-theory?

For a compact Hausdorff topological space $X$, its K-theory $K^0(X)$ is defined to be the Grothendieck group of the isomorphism classes of finite dimensional vector spaces on $X$. For example ...

### Is there an analog of Khovanov homology for edge deletion-contraction-extraction?

Motivated by Khovanov's categorification of the Jones polynomial, several authors have worked on the categorification of graph invariants. For the chromatic polynomial some references are:
"A ...

### Extensions of $Z/p$ by $Z/p$ and uniqueness of cokernels

I seem to run into something I cannot understand. Following Weibel (Homological Algebra), Ex. 3.4.1, p.76, it is claimed that if $p$ is prime, there are $p$ nonequivalent extensions of $Z/p$ by $Z/p$. ...

### Significance of the vanishing of $K_{-1}(A)$

In M. Schlichting's paper, he defines the negative $K$-theory for derived categories. In this he states that for $\mathcal{A}$ an idempotent complete (see below) triangulated category, ...

### Derived Functors Versus Spectral Sequences

Let $A{\buildrel F\over\rightarrow}B{\buildrel G\over\rightarrow}C$ be additive functors between abelian categories.
Hartshorne, in Proposition 5.4 of Residues and Duality, constructs the obvious ...

### Can injective resolutions be 'enlarged' (or shrunk) to admit only injective maps from extensions?

Let $M$ and $N$ be $R$-modules for some ring $R$. There is a standard result involving the computation of $\text{Ext}^n(M,N)$, using projective resolutions, which says that you can always choose a ...

### Is Margolis's axiomatisation conjecture still alive?

The construction of the category of finite spectra is easy, but there are different constructions of the whole homotopy category of spectra, all of which leading to the same result up to an ...

### $Ext$ functor, filtered complexes and spectral sequences

Let $\mathcal{A}$ an abelian category. Take $M$ an object of $\mathcal{A}$, and $K_*$ a bounded complex in $\mathcal{A}$ equipped with a bounded increasing filtration $F$. By using homological and ...

### Sequential colim vs sequential hocolim

Suppose we have some homotopical setting in which we can speak of homotopy colimits. The setting I have in mind at the moment is that of a compactly generated triangulated category with a model, but ...

### Do homotopy colimits always commute with homotopy colimits?

Do homotopy colimits commute with homotopy colimits? The setting I am thinking of is that of a triangulated category with a model, but it would be interesting to have more general answers as well. A ...

### If a colimit of distinguished triangles exists, is it also a distinguished triangle?

Consider the following situation in some triangulated category: We are given a collection of distinguished triangles $A_n \to B_n \to C_n \to A_n[1]$ indexed by the natural numbers, together with maps ...

### What are picard categories, where can I learn more about them, and why should I care to?

I have the category-theoretic background of the occasional stroll through Mac Lane's text, so excuse my ignorance in this regard. I was trying to learn all that I could on the subject of tensor ...
