Behaviour of P_infty with respect to degeneracies #

For any X : simplicial_object C where C is an abelian category, the projector P_infty : K[X] ⟶ K[X] is supposed to be the projection on the normalized subcomplex, parallel to the degenerate subcomplex, i.e. the subcomplex generated by the images of all X.σ i.

In this file, we obtain degeneracy_comp_P_infty which states that if X : simplicial_object C with C a preadditive category, θ : [n] ⟶ Δ' is a non injective map in simplex_category, then X.map θ.op ≫ P_infty.f n = 0. It follows from the more precise statement vanishing statement σ_comp_P_eq_zero for the P q.
