algebra.category.Group.limits

The category of (commutative) (additive) groups has all limits #

Further, these limits are preserved by the forgetful functor --- that is, the underlying types are just the limits in the category of types.

The flat sections of a functor into Group form a subgroup of all sections.

Equations

We show that the forgetful functor GroupMon creates limits.

All we need to do is notice that the limit point has a group instance available, and then reuse the existing limit.

Equations

A choice of limit cone for a functor into Group. (Generally, you'll just want to use limit F.)

noncomputable def Group.limit_cone {J : Type u} [category_theory.small_category J] (F : J Group) :

A choice of limit cone for a functor into Group. (Generally, you'll just want to use limit F.)

Equations

The chosen cone is a limit cone. (Generally, you'll just want to use limit.cone F.)
