stable infinity-category

A stable \infty-category is an ∞-category whose objects behave like homotopy-theoretic spectra.

A detailed theory for stable \infty-categories exists for the case of (∞,1)-categories: see stable (∞,1)-category.

This type of stability is not to be confused with being stably (or symmetric) monoidal.
