We recall and reformulate certain known constructions, in order to make a convenient setting for obtaining generalized monotone-light factorizations in the sense of A. Carboni, G. Janelidze, G. M. Kelly and R. Paré. This setting is used to study the existence of monotone-light factorizations both in categories of simplicial objects and in categories of internal categories. It is shown that there is a non-trivial monotone-light factorization for simplicial sets, such that the monotone-light… CONTINUE READING
