Sur les types d'homotopie modélisés par les $\infty$-groupoides stricts

Dimitri Ara

The purpose of this text is the study of the class of homotopy types which are modelized by strict $\infty$-groupoids. We show that the homotopy category of simply connected strict $\infty$-groupoids is equivalent to the derived category in homological degree $d \ge 2$ of abelian groups. We deduce that the simply connected homotopy types modelized by strict $\infty$-groupoids are precisely the products of Eilenberg-Mac Lane spaces. We also briefly study 3-categories with weak inverses. We finish by two questions about the problem suggested by the title of this text.

Keywords: strict $\infty$-groupoid, homotopy type, chain complex, homotopy category, Eilenberg-Mac Lane space
