Constructions of spectra from symmetric monoidal categories are typically functorial with respect to strict structure-preserving maps, but often the maps of interest are merely lax monoidal. We describe conditions under which one can transport the weak equivalences from one category to another with the same objects and a broader class of maps. Under mild hypotheses this process produces an equivalence of homotopy theories. We describe examples including algebras over an operad, such as…

Symmetric monoidal categories and $\Gamma$-categories

In this paper we construct a symmetric monoidal closed model category of coherently commutative monoidal categories. The main aim of this paper is to establish a Quillen equivalence between a model

Homotopy Equivalent Algebraic Structures in Multicategories and Permutative Categories

A BSTRACT . We show that the free construction from multicategories to permuta- tive categories is a categorically-enriched non-symmetric multifunctor. Our main result then shows that the induced

Multicategories Model All Connective Spectra

There is a free construction from multicategories to permutative categories, left adjoint to the endomorphism multicategory construction. The main result shows that these functors induce an

2-Dimensional Categories

2-Dimensional Categories provides an introduction to 2-categories and bicategories, assuming only the most elementary aspects of category theory. A review of basic category theory is followed by a



Spectra associated to symmetric monoidal bicategories

We show how to construct a Gamma-bicategory from a symmetric monoidal bicategory, and use that to show that the classifying space is an infinite loop space upon group completion. We also show a way


The classical innite loopspace machines in fact induce an equivalence of categories between a localization of the category of symmetric monoidal categories and the stable homotopy category of
