category theory

## Idea

The analog of the adjoint functor theorem for indexed categories.

## Statement

###### Theorem

Let $\mathcal{S}$ be a cartesian category, let $\mathbb{C}$ and $\mathbb{D}$ be $\mathcal{S}$-indexed categories which are locally small and have all colimits, and suppose further that $\mathbb{C}$ is well-copowered? and has a separating family. Then an indexed functor $F: \mathbb{C} \to \mathbb{D}$ has an indexed right adjoint precisely iff it is cocontinuous.

This is (Johnstone, theorem B2.4.6).
