Deeper Structure: Simplicial Sets
- 1.8k Downloads
In this chapter we will develop some further properties necessary to understand simplicial sets. In order to control the weak equivalences we introduce two classes of maps: fibrations and cofibrations. These maps formalize “obstruction theory”, or rather they tell us when existence of liftings can be expected. This is intimately connected with the fact that weak equivalences are not isomorphisms, although they become so in the homotopy category.
