We show that small quasicategories embed, both simplicially and 2-categorically, into prederivators defined on arbitrary small categories, so that in some senses prederivators can serve as a model for $(\infty,1)$-categories. The result for quasicategories that are not necessarily small, or analogously for small quasicategories when mapped to prederivators defined only on finite categories, is not as strong. We prove, instead, a Whitehead theorem that prederivators (defined on any domain… CONTINUE READING
