Definition

In a model category every morphism may be factored as a weak equivalence followed by a fibration. Specifically if the morphism is that to the terminal object, this process finds a weakly equivalent fibrant object. This is a fibrant replacement or resolution of the original object.

The dual concept is called cofibrant replacement.
