In this chapter I give a general procedure of transferring closed model structures along adjoint functor pairs. As applications I derive from a global closed model structure on the category of simplicial sheaves closed model structures on the category of sheaves of 2groupoids, the category of bisimplicial sheaves and the category of simplicial sheaves of groupoids. Subsequently, the homotopy theories of these categories are related to the homotopy theory of simplicial sheaves. 1 Introduction There are two ways of trying to generalize the well known closed model structure on the category of simplicial sets to the category of simplicial objects in a Grothendieck topos. One way is to concentrate on the local aspect, and to use the Kanfibrations as a starting point. In [14] Heller showed that for simplicial presheaves there is a local (there called right) closed model structure. In [2] K. Brown showed that for a topological space X the category of "locally fibrant" sheaves of spectra on ...

This paper displays an approach to the construction of the homotopy theory of simplicial sets and the corresponding equivalence with the homotopy theory of topological spaces which is based on simplicial approximation techniques. The required simplicial approximation results for simplicial sets and their proofs are given in full. Subdivision behaves like a covering in the context of the techniques displayed here.

We introduce nonabelian differential cohomology classifying ∞bundles with smooth connection and their higher gerbes of sections, generalizing [138]. We construct classes of examples of these from lifts, twisted lifts and obstructions to lifts through shifted central extensions of groups by the shifted abelian ngroup B n−1 U(1). Notable examples are String 2bundles [9] and Fivebrane 6bundles [133]. The obstructions to lifting ordinary principal bundles to these, hence in particular the obstructions to lifting Spinstructures to Stringstructures [13] and further to Fivebranestructures [133, 52], are abelian ChernSimons 3 and 7bundles with characteristic class the first and second fractional Pontryagin class, whose abelian cocycles have been constructed explicitly by Brylinski and McLaughlin [35, 36]. We realize their construction as an abelian component of obstruction theory in nonabelian cohomology by ∞Lieintegrating the L∞algebraic data in [132]. As a result, even if the lift fails, we obtain twisted String 2 and twisted Fivebrane 6bundles classified in twisted nonabelian (differential) cohomology and generalizing the twisted bundles appearing in twisted Ktheory. We explain the GreenSchwarz mechanism in heterotic string theory in terms of twisted String 2bundles and its magnetic dual version – according to [133] – in terms of twisted Fivebrane 6bundles. We close by transgressing differential cocycles to mapping
