The universality of the Rezk nerve

Aaron Mazel-Gee

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 19 (2019) 3217–3260
Abstract

We functorially associate to each relative –category (,W) a simplicial space NR(,W), called its Rezk nerve (a straightforward generalization of Rezk’s “classification diagram” construction for relative categories). We prove the following local and global universal properties of this construction: (i) that the complete Segal space generated by the Rezk nerve NR(,W) is precisely the one corresponding to the localization [[W1]]; and (ii) that the Rezk nerve functor defines an equivalence elCat[[WBK1]] Cat from a localization of the –category of relative –categories to the –category of –categories.
