Abstract. An intrinsic, combinatorial homotopy theory has been developed in [G3] for simplicial complexes; these form the cartesian closed subcategory of simple presheaves in!Smp, the topos of symmetric simplicial sets, or presheaves on the category!å of finite, positive cardinals. We show here how this homotopy theory can be extended to the topos itself,!Smp. As a crucial advantage, the fundamental groupoid Π1:!Smp = Gpd is left adjoint to a natural functor M1: Gpd =!Smp, the symmetric nerve of a groupoid, and preserves all colimits – a strong van Kampen property. Similar results hold in all higher dimensions. Analogously, a notion of (nonreversible) directed homotopy can be developed in the ordinary simplicial topos Smp, with applications to image analysis as in [G3]. We have now a homotopy ncategory functor ↑Πn: Smp = nCat, left adjoint to a nerve Nn = nCat(↑Πn(∆[n]), –). This construction can be applied to various presheaf categories; the basic requirements seem to be: finite products of representables are finitely presentable and there is a representable 'standard interval'.
Higher Hopf formulae for homology via Galois Theory

We use Janelidze’s Categorical Galois Theory to extend Brown and Ellis’s higher Hopf formulae for homology of groups to arbitrary semiabelian monadic categories. Given such a category A and a chosen Birkhoff subcategory B of A, thus we describe the BarrBeck derived functors of the reflector of A onto B in terms of centralization of higher extensions.

The category of finite cardinals (or, equivalently, of finite sets) is the symmetric analogue of the category of finite ordinals, and the ground category of a relevant category of presheaves, the augmented symmetric simplicial sets. We prove here that this ground category has characterisations similar to the classical ones for the category of finite ordinals, by the existence of a universal symmetric monoid, or by generators and relations. The latter provides a definition of symmetric simplicial sets by faces, degeneracies and transpositions, under suitable relations.

It is well known that Barr and Beck’s definition of comonadic homology makes sense also with a functor of coefficients taking values in a semiabelian category instead of an abelian one. The question arises whether such a homology theory has the same convenient properties as in the abelian case. Here we focus on independence of the chosen comonad: conditions for homology to depend on the induced class of projectives only.

The theory of general Galoistype extensions is presented, including the interrelations between coalgebra extensions and algebra (co)extensions, properties of corresponding (co)translation maps, and rudiments of entwinings and factorisations. To achieve broad perspective, this theory is placed in the context of far reaching generalisations of the Galois condition to the setting of corings. At the same time, to bring together Ktheory and general Galois theory, the equivariant projectivity of extensions is assumed resulting in the centrepiece concept of a principal extension. Motivated by noncommutative geometry, we employ such extensions as replacements of principal bundles. This brings about the notion of a strong connection and yields finitely generated projective associated modules, which play the role of noncommutative vector bundles. Subsequently, the theory of strong connections is developed. It is purported as a basic ingredient in the construction of the Chern character for Galoistype extensions (called the ChernGalois character).

We show here how this homotopy theory can be extended to the topos itself,!Smp.
