A 2Categorical Approach To Change Of Base And Geometric Morphisms II
, 1998
"... We introduce a notion of equipment which generalizes the earlier notion of proarrow equipment and includes such familiar constructs as relK, spnK, parK, and proK for a suitable category K, along with related constructs such as the Vpro arising from a suitable monoidal category V.

We introduce a notion of equipment which generalizes the earlier notion of proarrow equipment and includes such familiar constructs as relK, spnK, parK, and proK for a suitable category K, along with related constructs such as the Vpro arising from a suitable monoidal category V. We further exhibit the equipments as the objects of a 2category, in such a way that arbitrary functors F: L ✲ K induce equipment arrows relF: relL ✲ relK, spnF: spnL ✲ spnK, and so on, and similarly for arbitrary monoidal functors V ✲ W. The article I with the title above dealt with those equipments M having each M(A, B) only an ordered set, and contained a detailed analysis of the case M = relK; in the present article we allow the M(A, B) to be general categories, and illustrate our results by a detailed study of the case M = spnK. We show in particular that spn is a locallyfullyfaithful 2functor to the 2category of equipments, and determine its image on arrows. After analyzing the nature of adjunctions in the 2category of equipments, we are able to give a simple characterization of those spnG which arise from a geometric morphism G.
Constructive complete distributivity IV

, 1994
"... A complete lattice L is constructively completely distributive, (CCD), when the sup arrow from downclosed subobjects of L to L has a left adjoint. The Karoubian envelope of the bicategory of relations is biequivalent to the bicategory of (CCD) lattices and suppreserving arrows. There is a restrict ..."

A complete lattice L is constructively completely distributive, (CCD), when the sup arrow from downclosed subobjects of L to L has a left adjoint. The Karoubian envelope of the bicategory of relations is biequivalent to the bicategory of (CCD) lattices and suppreserving arrows. There is a restriction to order ideals and "totally algebraic" lattices. Both biequivalences have left exact versions. As applications we characterize projective sup lattices and recover a known characterization of projective frames. Also, the known characterization of nuclear sup lattices in set as completely distributive lattices is extended to yet another characterization of (CCD) lattices in a topos.

A complete lattice L is constructively completely distributive, (CCD)(L), if the sup map defined on down closed subobjects has a left adjoint. We characterize preservation of this property by left exact functors between toposes using a "logical comparison transformation". The characterization is applied to (direct images of) geometric morphisms to show that local homeomorphisms (in particular, product functors) preserve (CCD) objects, while preserving (CCD) objects implies openness. Research partially supported by grants from NSERC Canada. Diagrams typeset using Michael Barr's diagram macros. AMS Subject Classifications: 18B35, 06D10, 03G10. Introduction A complete ordered set L is constructively completely distributive, abbreviated to (CCD)(L); if there is a left adjoint to the sup map W : DL \Gamma! L; where DL is the set of downclosed subobjects of L ordered by inclusion. The condition is equivalent to (8S ` DL) i n S j S 2 S o = n fT (S) j S 2 Sg j T 2 \PiS oj which...
