Quasi-2-Segal sets

Matt Feller

Vol. 5 (2023), No. 2, 327–367

We show that the 2-Segal spaces (also called decomposition spaces) of Dyckerhoff and Kapranov, and Gálvez-Carrillo, Kock, and Tonks have a natural analogue within simplicial sets, which we call quasi-2-Segal sets, and that the two ideas enjoy a similar relationship as the one Segal spaces have with quasicategories. In particular, we construct a model structure on the category of simplicial sets whose fibrant objects are the quasi-2-Segal sets which is Quillen equivalent to a model structure for complete 2-Segal spaces (where our notion of completeness comes from one of the equivalent characterizations of completeness for Segal spaces). We also prove a path space criterion, which says that a simplicial set is a quasi-2-Segal set if and only if its path spaces (also called décalage) are quasicategories, as well as an edgewise subdivision criterion.
