category_theory.adjunction.fully_faithful

@[instance]

If the left adjoint is fully faithful, then the unit is an isomorphism.

If the right adjoint is fully faithful, then the counit is an isomorphism.

If C is a full subcategory of C' and D is a full subcategory of D', then we can restrict an adjunction L' ⊣ R' where L' : C' ⥤ D' and R' : D' ⥤ C' to C and D. The construction here is slightly more general, in that C is required only to have a full and faithful "inclusion" functor iC : C ⥤ C' (and similarly iD : D ⥤ D') which commute (up to natural isomorphism) with the proposed restrictions.
