Idea

By $(\infty,1)Topos$ is denoted the collection of all (∞,1)-toposes. This is the (∞,1)-category-theory analog of Topos.

Definition

$(\infty,1)\,Topos$ is the (non-full) sub-(∞,1)-category of (∞,1)Cat on (∞,1)-toposes and (∞,1)-geometric morphisms between them.

Morally, this should actually be an (∞,2)-category, just as Topos is a 2-category, but since the technology of $(\infty,2)$-categories is not well developed, this point of view is not often taken yet.

Properties

(…)

Existence of limits and colimits

We discuss existence of (∞,1)-limits and (∞,1)-colimits in $(\infty,1)Topos$.

Proposition

The $(\infty,1)$-category $(\infty,1)Topos$ has all small $(\infty,1)$-colimits and functor

$(\infty,1)Topos \to (\infty,1)Cat$

preserves these.

This is HTT, prop. 6.3.2.3.

Proposition

The $(\infty,1)$-category $(\infty,1)Topos$ has all small $(\infty,1)$-colimits and the inclusion

$(\infty,1)Topos^{op} \to (\infty,1)Cat$

sends (∞,1)-limits to (∞,1)-limits.

Propoisition

The $(\infty,1)$-category $(\infty,1)Topos$ has filtered (∞,1)-limits and the inclusion

$(\infty,1)Topos \to (\infty,1)Cat$

preserves these.

This is HTT, prop. 6.3.3.1.

Propoisition

The $(\infty,1)$-category $(\infty,1)Topos$ has all small (∞,1)-limits.

This is HTT, prop. 6.3.4.7.

Remark

The $(\infty,1)$-limits in $(\infty,1)Topos$ coincide actually with the proper $(\infty,2)$-limits.

This is HTT, remark 6.3.4.10.

Computation of limits and colimits

We discuss more or less explicit descriptions of (∞,1)-limits and (∞,1)-colimits in $(\infty,1)Topos$.

Proposition

Let

$\array{ && \mathcal{X} \\ && \downarrow^{\mathrlap{(g^* \dashv g_*)}} \\ \mathcal{Y} &\stackrel{(f^* \dashv f_*)}{\to}& \mathcal{Z} }$

be a diagram of (∞,1)-toposes. Then its (∞,1)-pullback is computed, roughly, by the (∞,1)-pushout of their (∞,1)-sites of definition (see above).

More in detail: there exist (∞,1)-sites $\tilde \mathcal{D}$, $\mathcal{D}$, and $\mathcal{C}$ with finite (∞,1)-limit and morphisms of sites

$\array{ && \mathcal{D} \\ && \uparrow^{\mathrlap{g}} \\ \tilde \mathcal{D} &\stackrel{f}{\leftarrow}& \mathcal{C} }$

such that

$\left( \array{ && \mathcal{X} \\ && \downarrow^{\mathrlap{(g^* \dashv g_*)}} \\ \mathcal{Y} &\stackrel{(f^* \dashv f_*)}{\to}& \mathcal{Z} } \right) \,\,\, \simeq \,\,\, \left( \array{ && Sh_{(\infty,1)}(\mathcal{D}) \\ && \downarrow^{\mathrlap{(Lan_g \dashv (-)\circ g)}} \\ Sh_{(\infty,1)}(\tilde \mathcal{D}) &\stackrel{(Lan_f \dashv (-)\circ f)}{\to}& Sh_{(\infty,1)}(\mathcal{C}) } \right) \,.$

Let then

$\array{ \tilde \mathcal{D} \coprod_{\mathcal{C}} \mathcal{D} &\stackrel{f'}{\leftarrow}& \mathcal{D} \\ {}^{\mathllap{g'}}\uparrow &\swArrow_{\simeq}& \uparrow^{\mathrlap{g}} \\ \tilde \mathcal{D} &\stackrel{f}{\leftarrow}& \mathcal{C} } \,\,\,\,\, \in (\infty,1)Cat^{lex}$

be the (∞,1)-pushout of the underlying (∞,1)-categories in the full sub-(∞,1)-category (∞,1)Cat${}^{lex} \subset (\infty,1)Cat$ of $(\infty,1)$-categories with finite $(\infty,1)$-limits.

Let moreover

$Sh_{(\infty,1)}(\tilde \mathcal{D} \coprod_{\mathcal{C}} \mathcal{D}) \hookrightarrow PSh_{(\infty,1)}(\tilde \mathcal{D} \coprod_{\mathcal{C}} \mathcal{D})$

be the reflective sub-(∞,1)-category obtained by localization at the class of morphisms generated by the inverse image $Lan_{f'}(-)$ of the coverings of $\mathcal{D}$ and the inverse image $Lan_{g'}(-)$ of the coverings of $\tilde \mathcal{D}$.

Then

$\array{ Sh_{(\infty,1)}(\tilde \mathcal{D} \coprod_{\mathcal{C}} \mathcal{D}) &\to& \mathcal{X} \\ \downarrow &\swArrow_{\simeq}& \downarrow^{\mathrlap{(g^* \dashv g_*)}} \\ \mathcal{Y} &\stackrel{(f^* \dashv f_*)}{\to}& \mathcal{Z} }$

is an (∞,1)-pullback square.

This is HTT, prop. 6.3.4.6.
