### Understanding the higher stack of perfect complexes

One of the most famous examples of higher Artin stacks is the stack of perfect complexes. I recall here the basic stuff: We fix a function $b: \mathbb{Z} \rightarrow \mathbb{N}$ which is zero ...

### Methods for finding complex for subobjects of homology

Let $\mathcal{C}$ be an abelian category and $$C_\bullet:C_n \rightarrow C_{n-1}\rightarrow \ldots \rightarrow C_1\rightarrow C_0$$ a complex in $\mathcal{C}$. Suppose we have for each $i$ a ...

### Transgression in terms of k-invariant for chain complexes

I am looking for a reference for the following. Say we have a $G$-space $X$ whose homology groups (in field coefficients $k$) are non-zero only in dimension zero and for a fixed $n>0$. Let $M$ ...

### Injective model structure on sheaves of bounded complexes of $A$-modules

The following might be very well known for people who works with model categories, but I do not find the answer. Let $A$-be a ring. Denote $\mathbf{Ch}_+(A)$ the category of positive degree cochain ...

### Is the class of acyclic complexes deconstructible?

Let $\mathcal{C}$ be a category, then a class $\mathcal{A}\subseteq \mathcal{C}$ is deconstructible if there is a set $\mathcal{S}\subseteq\mathcal{C}$ such that $\mathcal{A}$ consists of $\mathcal{S}$...

### How to prove that any perfect complex on an affine scheme is strictly perfect?

Let $(X,\mathcal{A})$ be a ringed space. A complex $\mathcal{S}^{\bullet}$ of $\mathcal{A}$-modules is $\textit{perfect}$ if for any point $x\in X$, there exists an open neighborhood $U$ of $x$ and a ...

### Are chain complexes over a field always injective?

Question: Let $\mathbb{F}$ be an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero and let $\mathrm{Ch}_{\mathbb{F}}$ be the category whose objects are chain complexes (of $\mathbb{F}$-modules) and ...

### Torsion in cohomology

Suppose to have a short exact sequence of chain complexes of $\mathbb{Z}$-modules: $$0\to A^\bullet\to B^\bullet\to C^\bullet\to 0$$ such that $A^k,B^k,C^k$ are non zero for $k=0,1,2$. Moreover, ...

### Reference for homotopy (co)limits of (co)chain complexes via totalization of double complexes

It seems to be a well-known fact that homotopy (co)limits of (co)simplicial diagrams of nonnegatively graded (co)chain complexes in (Grothendieck) abelian categories can be computed by using the Dold-...

### Is a inverse limit of indecomposable again indecomposable?

In truth, I do not need in the general case. Let $R$ be a ring (associative, with unit element) and let $\mathrm{Comp}(R)$ the category of complexes over $\mathrm{Mod}\ R$. If $\mathbb{N}$ is the ...

### Smith Normal Form for block matrices over the integers

Are there any known results on the Smith Normal Form for block matrices over the integers? In particular, I am interested in matrices of size $kr \times ks$ made of square blocks of size $k$ such that ...
The setup is as follows: We have the category $C$ of chain complexes over some additive/abelian category and want to pass to the category $K$ of chain complexes modulo homotopy. So we have an (...
