For a Lawvere theory and the category of algebra over a Lawvere theory, there is a model category structure on the category of simplicial -algebras which models the -algebras for rregarded as an (∞,1)-algebraic theory.
Recall that the (∞,1)-category of (∞,1)-presheaves itself is modeled by the model structure on simplicial presheaves
where we regard as a Kan complex-enriched category and have on the right the sSet-enriched functor category with the projective or injective model structure, and denoting the full enriched subcategory on fibrant-cofibrant objects.
This says in particular that every weak -functor is equivalent to a rectified one . And belongs to if preserves finite products weakly in that for a finite collection of objects, the canonical natural morphism
is a homotopy equivalence of Kan complexes.
We now look at model category structure on strictly product preserving functors , which gives an equivalent model for . See model structure on homotopy T-algebras.
This is due to (Quillen).
The inclusion into the projective model structure on simplicial presheaves evidently preserves fibrations and acyclic fibrations and gives a Quillen adjunction
This is due to (Bergner).
It follows that the natural -functor
is an equivalence.
A comprehensive statement of these facts is in HTT, section 5.5.9.
(second model structure)
Let be the Lawvere theory for commutative associative algebras over a ring . Then becomes a simplicial model category with
weak equivalences the morphisms whose underlying morphusms of simplicial sets are weak equivalences;
fibrations the morphisms such that is a degreewise surjection.
This appears as (GoerssSchemmerhorn, theorem 4.17).
Relation to homotopy -algebras
This is theorem 1.3 in (Badzioch).
Let be an abelian Lawvere theory, a theory that contains the theory of abelian group, . Then every simplicial -algebra has an underlying abelian simplicial group and is necessarily a Kan complex.
The homotopy groups of a simplicial abelian -agebra form an -graded -algebra
The inclusion of the full subcategory of ordinary -algebra as the simplicially constant ones constitutes a Quillen adjunction
from the trivial model structure on .
The derived functor is a full and faithful functor.
This allows us to think of ordinary -algebras a sitting inside --algebras.
all this is certainly true for ordinary -algebras. Need to spell out general proof.
Simplicial ordinary -algebras
A simplicial rings is a simplicial -algebras for the Lawvere theory of rings.
Let be an ordinary commutative ring and the theory of commutative associative algebras over . We write as or .
Such simplicial -algebras are discussed for instance in (ToënVezzosi, section 2.2.1).
