Discreteness and completeness for $\Theta_n$-models of $(\infty,n)$-categories

Julia E. Bergner

Vol. 6 (2024), No. 1, 49–96

We establish cartesian model structures for variants of Θn-spaces in which we replace some or all of the completeness conditions by discreteness conditions. We prove that they are all equivalent to each other and to the Θn-space model, and we give a criterion for which combinations of discreteness and completeness give nonoverlapping models. These models can be thought of as generalizations of Segal categories in the framework of Θn-diagrams. In the process, we give a characterization of the Dwyer–Kan equivalences in the Θn-space model, generalizing the one given by Rezk for complete Segal spaces.
