A good place where to learn about derived functors
Fixed. I've moved jobs since writing this answer, and the link was to my old website. |

For a ring $k$ and a set $X$, what are the $k$-algebra homomorphisms $k^X \to k$?
Thanks, Eric. So in particular, whether there exist nontrivial maps $k^X \to k$ depends only on $X$ and the cardinality of $k$, at least when $k$ is a field. |

@ArturoMagidin: Thanks for the edit, Latexifying the title. I seem to recall a meta discussion a while ago in which various people said Latex in titles should be kept to a minimum. It was a matter of speeding up rendering on slow devices or slow network connections. That's why I wrote the title in plain text. But I'm not so bothered about it that I'm going to change it back. |

@TomGoodwillie: Thanks! Your argument implies that if $|X| \leq |k|$ then there are no nontrivial homomorphisms $k^X \to k$, doesn't it? |

@YCor: I don't have a particular interest in large cardinals, thanks, but neither do I particularly want to rule out sets of large cardinality. |

On the coherence theorem for bicategories
If you want a quick overview of the situation, you could try the slides here, especially pages 8 and 14: maths.ed.ac.uk/~tl/toronto |

History of integral notation for coends
Do you know how we came to write the end variable at the bottom of the integral sign and the coend variable at the top? |

What theorem constructs an initial object for this category? (Formerly “Integrability by abstract nonsense”)
@IanMorris Thanks for pointing out the dead link. I still haven't got round to publishing it, but meanwhile I've proved some further results: maths.ed.ac.uk/~tl/cambridge_ct14 and golem.ph.utexas.edu/category/2014/07/… |
