codiscrete object



For Γ:\Gamma : \mathcal{E} \to \mathcal{B} a functor we say that it has codiscrete objects if it has a full and faithful right adjoint coDisc:coDisc : \mathcal{B} \hookrightarrow \mathcal{E}.

An object in the essential image of coDisccoDisc is called a codiscrete object.

This is for instance the case for the global section geometric morphism of a local topos (DiscΓcoDisc) (Disc \dashv \Gamma \dashv coDisc) \mathcal{E} \to \mathcal{B}.

If one thinks of \mathcal{E} as a category of spaces, then the codiscrete objects are called codiscrete spaces.

The dual notion is that of discrete objects.


Γ\Gamma is a faithful functor on morphisms whose codomain is concrete.



If \mathcal{E} has a terminal object that is preserved by Γ\Gamma, then \mathcal{E} has concrete objects.

This is (Shulman, theorem 1).


If \mathcal{E} has codiscrete objects and has pullbacks that are preserved by Γ\Gamma and , then Γ\Gamma is a Grothendieck fibration.

This is (Shulman, theorem 2).
