nLab finite (infinity,1)-category




The concept of finite (∞,1)-category is the generalization of finite homotopy type from ∞-groupoids((∞,0)-categories) to (∞,1)-categories.

If we model (∞,1)-categories by quasicategories, then this can be made precise by saying it is equivalent to the fibrant replacement in the Joyal model structure of a simplicial set with finitely many nondegenerate simplices (in the ∞-groupoid case also: finite CW-complex).
