### What is the geometric significance of fibered category theory in topos theory?

Often in topos theory, one starts with a geometric morphism $f: \mathcal Y \to \mathcal X$, but quickly passes to the Grothendieck fibration $U_f: \mathcal Y \downarrow f^\ast \to \mathcal X$, which ...

### Internal equality for Eq-fibrations' morphisms

I have posted this question here on M.SE but since it received little attention and since it seems difficult to find helpfule references I reposting it here.
In Jacob's Categorical logic and Type ...

### Choice free definition of category of descent data w.r.t a fibration?

Let $\mathsf C$ be a category and consider a pseudofunctor (non-strict 2-functor) $P:\mathsf C^{\text{op}}\to\mathsf{Cat}$. Given an arrow $f:X\to Y$ in $\mathsf C$, define the category of descent ...

### English Reference for the Bénabou-Roubaud theorem

The Bénabou-Roubaud theorem links fibrational descent theory with monadicity. Particularly, it says that given a bifibration satisfying the Beck-Chevalley condition w.r.t some arrow $p$ in the base ...

### Difficulties with descent data as homotopy limit of image of Čech nerve

Apologies if this question is inappropriate for MO. It is not a research level question in any of the topics it addresses, I just don't see how a novice can go about answering it alone (I've tried ...

### Reference request: Grothendieck construction for $\mathbb V$-distributors?

I'm currently working with an analogue of the Grothendieck construction for enriched categories:
Given a distributor a.k.a. $\mathbb V$-functor $D:X^\mathrm{op}\otimes Y\to \mathbb V$ there is a ...

### Where else has Proposition B1.3.17 in the Elephant been proved?

(I asked the same question here and got some helpful comments, but thought I'd re-ask in case I get a more direct response.)
This is a sort of reference request. Proposition B1.3.17 in Johnstone's ...

### Are non-algebraic stacks useful in algebraic geometry?

The title is a bit vague. What I want to know is if there is any geometric application of non-algebraic stacks. I know e.g. the category of coherent sheaves is an example. But I want to ask if people ...

### Adjunctions form a stack

Let $C$ be a base category, $F,G$ be two categories fibered over $C$ and $F \to G$ be a morphism. The following criterion is used very often: If all the fiber functors $F_U \to G_U$ ($U \in C$) are ...

### Fibered category with an adjoint inclusion

Suppose $X:D \to C$ is a fibered category (I do not assume the fibers to be groupoids). Suppose that $X$ is actually left adjoint to a fully faithful embedding $C \hookrightarrow D$. Is there a ...

### (Co-)Limits and fibrations of DG-Categories?

First of all, let me see if I got the 1-categorical version right:
Let $\mathcal F:C\to Cat $ be a
(pseudo-) functor. The 2-colimit
$\mathrm{colim}_C\mathcal F$ is then
given by the Grothendieck
...

### Explicit description of a fibered category

I found the following exercise in Vistoli's notes. He proves a theorem stating that any category $\mathcal{F}$ fibered over $\mathcal{C}$ is equivalent, as a fibered category, to a split one. Namely $\...
