on chain complexes/model structure on cosimplicial abelian groups
related by the Dold-Kan correspondence
The following definition was introduced by Jeff Smith under the name of a minimal model structure.
(See Definition 2.1 in (RT 2003). A model structure on a category $M$ with a fixed class of cofibrations $C$ is left-determined if its class of weak equivalences is the smallest class of morphisms that is closed under retracts, satisfies the 2-out-of-3 property, contains all morphisms with a right lifting property with respect to $C$, and whose intersection with $C$ is weakly saturated.
Note that a left-determined model structure is determined uniquely by its class of cofibrations.
Assuming the Vopěnka principle, the existence of left-determined model structures can be shown under very general conditions, see Theorem 2.2 in (RT 2003):
The weak saturation of any set of morphisms in a locally presentable category is the class of cofibrations of a (unique) left-determined model structure.
Without the Vopěnka principle the best results known so far require additional restrictions on the underlying category:
(Olschok 2009) The weak saturation of a set $I$ of morphisms in a locally presentable category is the class of cofibrations of a (unique) left-determined model structure as long as the weak factorization system generated by $I$ admits a very good cartesian cylinder (Definition 2.3 in (Gaucher 2015)) and all objects are cofibrant.
