nLab (eso, fully faithful) factorization system




In the 2-topos Cat, the pair of classes of morphisms (essentially surjective functors, fully faithful functors) form a factorization system in a 2-category. This factorization system can also be restricted to the (2,1)-topos Grpd.

e.g. (Dupont-Vitale 03, 7.9, example 2)

In fact, an analogous factorization system exists in any regular 2-category and any (2,1)-exact (2,1)-category, including any Grothendieck 2-topos or (2,1)-topos; see here?.
