We study 2monads and their algebras using a Catenriched version of Quillen model categories, emphasizing the parallels between the homotopical and 2categorical points of view. Every 2category with finite limits and colimits has a canonical model structure in which the weak equivalences are the equivalences; we use these to construct more interesting model structures on 2categories, including a model structure on the 2category of algebras for a 2monad T, and a model structure on a 2category of 2monads on a fixed 2category K. 1
Model structures on the category of small double categories, Algebraic and Geometric Topology 8
, 2008
"... Abstract. In this paper we obtain several model structures on DblCat, the category of small double categories. Our model structures have three sources. We first transfer across a categorificationnerve adjunction. Secondly, we view double categories as internal categories in Cat and take as our weak ..."

Abstract. In this paper we obtain several model structures on DblCat, the category of small double categories. Our model structures have three sources. We first transfer across a categorificationnerve adjunction. Secondly, we view double categories as internal categories in Cat and take as our weak equivalences various internal equivalences defined via Grothendieck topologies. Thirdly, DblCat inherits a model structure as a category of algebras over a 2monad. Some of these model structures coincide and the different points of view give us further results about cofibrant replacements and cofibrant objects. As part of this program we give explicit descriptions and discuss properties of free double categories, quotient double categories, colimits of double categories, and several nerves
Internal categories, anafunctors and localisations
"... In this article we review the theory of anafunctors introduced by Makkai and Bartels, and show that given a subcanonical site S, one can form a bicategorical localisation of various 2categories of internal categories or groupoids at weak equivalences using anafunctors as 1arrows. This unifies a nu ..."

In this article we review the theory of anafunctors introduced by Makkai and Bartels, and show that given a subcanonical site S, one can form a bicategorical localisation of various 2categories of internal categories or groupoids at weak equivalences using anafunctors as 1arrows. This unifies a number of proofs throughout the literature, using the fewest assumptions possible on S. 1.
SEMISTRICT TAMSAMANI NGROUPOIDS AND CONNECTED NTYPES
, 2007
"... Tamsamani’s weak ngroupoids are known to model ntypes. In this paper we show that every Tamsamani weak ngroupoid representing a connected ntype is equivalent in a suitable way to a semistrict one. We obtain this result by comparing Tamsamani’s weak ngroupoids and cat n−1groups as models of co ..."
