Modeling mapping spaces with short hammocks
2014 (English)Licentiate thesis, monograph (Other academic)
We construct a category of short hammocks and show that it has the weak homotopy type of mapping spaces. In doing so we tackle the problem of applying the nerve to large categories without the use of multiple universes. We also explore what the mapping space is. The main tool in showing the connection between hammocks and mapping spaces will be the use of homotopy groupoids, homotopy groupoid actions and the homotopy fiber of their corresponding bar constructions.
