### A fibrant-objects structure on Top

(Sorry for the crossposting, but I'm really interested in this question).
One can define (Paragraph 1.5, page 10) a fibrant-object structure on a suitable cartesian closed category of topological ...

### What determines a model structure?

It is easy to prove that a model structure is determined by the following classes of maps (determined = two model structures with the mentioned classes in common are equal).
cofibrations and weak ...

### What are the fibrant objects in the injective model structure?

If C is a small category, we can consider the category of simplicial presheaves on C. This is a model category in two natural ways which are compatible with the usual model structure on simplicial ...

### Is there a notion of a “model category which admits left Bousfield localization?”

At a conference not too long ago I gave a talk on (left) Bousfield localization and was asked an interesting question afterwards. The question was whether I knew any examples of model categories which ...

### Model structure on the category of small $A_\infty$ categories, hocolims.

I strangely could not find a reference for this. What are some (if any) model structures on the category of small $A_{\infty}$ categories, with weak equivalences quasi-equivalences. Same question in ...

### State of knowledge on the Commutative W-spaces which appear in “Model Categories of Diagram Spectra”

This is a follow-up question to another question I asked last month. In MMSS's "Model Categories of Diagram Spectra," the authors consider many different models for spectra and prove monoidal Quillen ...

### 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 ...

### Finite homotopy limits commute with sequential homotopy colimits

I would like to know for what kind of model category finite homotopy limits commute with sequential homotopy colimits. Would cofibrantly generated and finitely locally presentable be enough? It seems ...

### Reedy model structures on oplax limits

Suppose $R$ is a category and $F:R\to Cat$ is a functor (or pseudofunctor). The oplax limit of $F$ is the category whose objects consist of an object $x_r \in F(r)$ for all $r$ together with a ...

### Model structure on category of endofunctors

Let $\mathcal C$ be model category, perhaps even cofibrantly generated. I don't assume that $\mathcal C$ is small. Recall that $End(\mathcal C)$ is the category of endofunctors on $\mathcal C$, with ...

### When is homotopy orbit space weakly equivalent to orbit space, other than situation of free action?

Let $M$ be a closed symmetric monoidal model category. Let $X$ be a cofibrant object (it can also be fibrant if you like) and let $\Sigma_n$ act on $X^{\otimes n}$ by permuting the factors (note that ...

### Small model categories?

All the standard examples for model categories are large categories. Is it possible to have a small model category? Are there any interesting examples?
EDIT:
Since a complete small category is a ...

### Alternative characterization of homotopy equivalence

Using the formalism of model categories its possible define the concept of homotopy as done here.
If we take as model category $\mathbf{Top}$ having homotopy-equivalence as weak-equivalence and ...
