### Reference for the tricategory of elements associated to a trifunctor

The theory of bicategorical fibrations has been relatively well studied, e.g. by Baković and by Buckley. In particular, given a trifunctor $F : \mathcal K \to \mathbf{Bicat}$ from a bicategory $\...

### Does the Grothendieck construction produce a 2-category or a category?

Let $F : \mathcal{C} \to \mathbf{Cat}$ be a lax 2-functor. Then we can form a category $\int F $ which is the Grothendieck construction on F.
There's a number of resources detailing this construction, ...

### Does the Grothendieck construction satisfy Fubini's thorem

Suppose we are given a functor
$F:(A\times B)^{\operatorname{op}}\to \operatorname{Set}$.
It's well-known that the Grothendieck construction in this case evaluates as
$\int_{A\times B}F = (A\...

### The category of elements corresponding to a coend as a higher colimit

Let $D: \mathcal{C} \to \mathbf{Set}$ be a diagram of sets, then we can obtain the colimit of $D$ as the set of connected components of the category of elements of $F$, which we denote by $\mathrm{el}(...

### Grothendieck construction and coends

In category theory, both the Grothendieck construction and coends are represented by a sort of "integral sign", respectively:
$$
\int F
$$
for a functor $F:C\to\mathbf{Cat}$,
and:
$$
\int^x G(x,x)
$$
