                                      The classical model category structure on pointed topological spaces Top Quillen */Top^{\ast/}_{Quillen} is the model structure on an undercategory of the classical model structure on topological spaces Top QuillenTop_{Quillen} under the point.

                                      With the smash product this is a monoidal model category.


                                      Cofibrant generation

                                      Recall that the generatic cofibrations of the classical model structure on topological spaces are

                                      I Top{S n1ι nD n} n I_{Top} \coloneqq \left\{ S^{n-1} \overset{\iota_n}{\longrightarrow} D^n \right\}_{n \in \mathbb{N}}

                                      and the generating acylic cofibrations are

                                      J Top{D n(id,δ 0)D n×I} n. J_{Top} \coloneqq \left\{ D^n \overset{(id,\delta_0)}{\longrightarrow} D^n \times I \right\}_{n \in \mathbb{N}} \,.


                                      () +:TopTop */ (-)_+ \;\colon\; Top \longrightarrow Top^{\ast/}

                                      for the operation of freely adjoining a basepoint.


                                      The coslice model structure (Top Quillen) */(Top_{Quillen})^{\ast/} is itself cofibrantly generated, with generating cofibrations

                                      I Top */={S + n1(ι n) +D + n} I_{Top^{\ast/}} = \left\{ S^{n-1}_+ \overset{(\iota_n)_+}{\longrightarrow} D^n_+ \right\}

                                      and generating acyclic cofibrations

                                      J Top */={D + n(id,δ 0) +(D n×I) +}. J_{Top^{\ast/}} = \left\{ D^n_+ \overset{(id, \delta_0)_+}{\longrightarrow} (D^n \times I)_+ \right\} \,.

                                      This is a special case of a general statement about cofibrant generation of coslice model structures, see this proposition.
