Title:

The classifying topos of a topological bicategory

Author:

Description:

For any topological bicategory 2C, the Duskin nerve N2C of 2C is a simplicial space. We introduce the classifying topos B2C of 2C as the Deligne topos of sheaves Sh(N2C) on the simplicial space N2C. It is shown that the category of topos morphisms Hom(Sh(X), BC) from the topos of sheaves Sh(X) on a topological space X to the Deligne classifying ...

For any topological bicategory 2C, the Duskin nerve N2C of 2C is a simplicial space. We introduce the classifying topos B2C of 2C as the Deligne topos of sheaves Sh(N2C) on the simplicial space N2C. It is shown that the category of topos morphisms Hom(Sh(X), BC) from the topos of sheaves Sh(X) on a topological space X to the Deligne classifying topos is naturally equivalent to the category of principal C-bundles. As a simple consequence, the geometric realization |N2C | of the nerve N2C of a locally contractible topological bicategory 2C is the classifying space of principal 2C-bundles (on CW complexes), giving a variant of the result of Baas, Bökstedt and Kro derived in the context of bicategorical K-theory [1]. We also define classifying topoi of a topological bicategory 2C using sheaves on other types of nerves of a bicategory given by Lack and Paoli [13], Simpson [17] and Tamsamani [18] by means of bisimplicial spaces, and we examine their properties. 1 Minimize

Actions of bicategories arise as categorification of actions of categories. They appear in a variety of different contexts in mathematics, from Moerdijk’s classification of regular Lie groupoids in foliation theory [34] to Waldmann’s work on deformation quantization [38]. For any such action we introduce an action bicategory, together with a canonical projection (strict) 2-functor to the bicategory which acts. When the bicategory is a bigroupoid, we can impose the additional condition that action is principal in bicategorical sense, giving rise to a bigroupoid 2-torsor. In that case, the Duskin nerve of the canonical projection is precisely the Duskin-Glenn simplicial 2-torsor, introduced in [25]. 1 Minimize

Bigroupoid 2-torsors

Description:

"In this thesis we follow two fundamental concepts from the {\it higher dimensional algebra}, the {\it categorification} and the {\it internalization}.

"In this thesis we follow two fundamental concepts from the {\it higher dimensional algebra}, the {\it categorification} and the {\it internalization}. From the geometric point of view, so far the most general torsors were defined in the dimension $n=1$, by {\it actions of categories and groupoids}. In the dimension $n=2$, Mauri and Tierney, and more recently Baez and Bartels from the different point of view, defined less general 2-torsors with the structure 2-group. Using the language of simplicial algebra, Duskin and Glenn defined actions and torsors internal to any Barr exact category $\E$, in an arbitrary dimension $n$. This actions are simplicial maps which are {\it exact fibrations} in dimensions $m \geq n$, over special simplicial objects called {\it n-dimensional Kan hypergroupoids}. The correspondence between the geometric and the algebraic theory in the dimension $n=1$ is given by the Grothendieck nerve construction, since the Grothendieck nerve of a groupoid is precisely a 1-dimensional Kan hypergroupoid. One of the main results is that groupoid actions and groupoid torsors become simplicial actions and simplicial torsors over the corresponding 1-dimensional Kan hypergroupoids, after the application of the Grothendieck nerve functor. The main result of the thesis is a generalization of this correspondence to the dimension $n=2$. This result is achieved by introducing two new algebraic and geometric concepts, {\it actions of bicategories} and {\it bigroupoid 2-torsors}, as a categorification and an internalization of actions of categories and groupoid torsors. We provide the classification of bigroupoid 2-torsors by {\it the second nonabelian cohomology} with coefficients in the structure bigroupoid. The second nonabelian cohomology is defined by means of the third new concept in the thesis, a {\it small 2-fibration} corresponding to an internal bigroupoid in the category $\E$. The correspondence between the geometric and the algebraic theory in the dimension $n=2$ is given by the Duskin nerve construction for bicategories and bigroupoids since the Duskin nerve of a bigroupoid is precisely a 2-dimensional Kan hypergroupoid. Finally, the main results of the thesis is that bigroupoid actions and bigroupoid 2-torsors become simplicial actions and simplicial 2-torsors over the corresponding 2-dimensional Kan hypergroupoids, after the application of the Duskin nerve functor."
