• Abstract Bivariant Cuntz Semigroups 

      [OWP-2017-04] Antoine, Ramon; Perera, Francesc; Thiel, Hannes (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2017-02-13)
      We show that abstract Cuntz semigroups form a closed symmetric monoidal category. Thus, given Cuntz semigroups $S$ and $T$, there is another Cuntz semigroup $((S,T))$ playing the role of morphisms from $S$ to $T$. Applied ...

    • Cauchy Completeness, Lax Epimorphisms and Effective Descent for Split Fibrations 

      [OWP-2023-06] Lucatelli Nunes, Fernando; Prezado, Rui; Sousa, Lurdes (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2023-06-19)
      For any suitable base category $\mathcal{V} $, we find that $\mathcal{V} $-fully faithful lax epimorphisms in $\mathcal{V} $-$\mathsf{Cat} $ are precisely those $\mathcal{V}$-functors $F \colon \mathcal{A} \to \mathcal{B}$ ...
    • Definable orthogonality classes in accessible categories are small 

      [OWP-2011-14] Bagaria, Joan; Casacuberta, Carles; Mathias, Adrian R. D.; Rosický, Jiří (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2011-05-15)
      We lower substantially the strength of the assumptions needed for the validity of certain results in category theory and homotopy theory which were known to follow from Vopenka's principle. We prove that the necessary ...
    • Lax Comma Categories of Ordered Sets 

      [OWP-2023-08] Clementino, Maria Manuel; Lucatelli Nunes, Fernando (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2023-06-19)
      Let $\mathsf{Ord} $ be the category of (pre)ordered sets. Unlike $\mathsf{Ord}/X$, whose behaviour is well-known, not much can be found in the literature about the lax comma 2-category $\mathsf{Ord} //X$. In this paper ...
    • Logical Relations for Partial Features and Automatic Differentiation Correctness 

      [OWP-2023-09] Lucatelli Nunes, Fernando; Vákár, Matthijs (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2023-06-19)
      We present a simple technique for semantic, open logical relations arguments about languages with recursive types, which, as we show, follows from a principled foundation in categorical semantics. We demonstrate how it can ...
    • Semantic Factorization and Descent 

      [OWP-2023-05] Lucatelli Nunes, Fernando (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2023-06-19)
      Let $\mathbb{A}$ be a $2$-category with suitable opcomma objects and pushouts. We give a direct proof that, provided that the codensity monad of a morphism $p$ exists and is preserved by a suitable morphism, the factorization ...
