### On the cardinal arithmetic of accessible categories

If $\lambda, \mu$ are regular cardinals, say that $\lambda \trianglelefteq \mu$ if $\lambda \leq \mu$ and
$$\forall X, \, |X| < \mu \implies \mathrm{cf} (P_\lambda(X)) < \mu$$
Here $P_\lambda(X)...

### What is known about the large cardinal strength of Shelah's categoricity conjecture?

Shelah's categoricity conjecture states that for every Abstract Elementary Class $\mathcal{K}$ there is a cardinal $\mu$ depending only on $\operatorname{LS}(K)$ (i.e. the Löwenheim–Skolem number of $\...

### When are the categories of algebras over props (co)complete?

Suppose P is a (colored) prop in a closed symmetric monoidal locally presentable category C. Is the category Alg_P of algebras over P in C locally presentable?
It seems that one can relatively easy ...

### Preimages of accessible full subcategories

My question is ultimately about the model theory of $L_{\infty, \omega}$, but it is more convenient to phrase it in terms of category theory. Suppose I have finitely accessible categories $\mathcal{C},...

### Orthogonality relations and accessibility?

Suppose I have a pair of locally presentable categories connected by an accessible functor. Then the preimage of an accessible subcategory of the codomain is an accessible subcategory of the domain. ...

### Equivalence of the two definitions of k-compactness/k-presentability

We say that an object $X$ of a category $C$ is $\kappa$-compact (also $\kappa$-presentable and $\kappa$-accessible) for a cardinal $\kappa$ if $h^X(\cdot):=Hom(X,\cdot)$ commutes with all $\kappa$-...

### The poset of k-small downward-closed subposets of a poset P is k-filtered when k is a regular cardinal?

Let $\kappa$ be a cardinal, and let $P$ be a poset. Let $\mathcal{P}_\kappa(P)$ denote the poset of $\kappa$-small subposets of $P$ and let $\mathcal{P}_\kappa^\downarrow(P)\subseteq\mathcal{P}_\...

### Reasons to believe Vopenka's principle/huge cardinals are consistent

There are a number of informal heuristic arguments for the consistency of ZFC, enough that I am happy enough to believe that ZFC is consistent. This is true for even some of the more tame large ...

### K-good trees and K-compactness of colimits over K-small downwards-closed subposets (500 point bounty if answered by Midnight EST))

Question:
Let $D:A\to (X\downarrow C)$ be a $\kappa$-good $S$-tree rooted at $X$ for a collection of morphisms $S$ in $C$, where $\kappa$ is a fixed uncountable regular cardinal. Then according to ...
