model category

for ∞-groupoids

# Contents

## Definition

A Thomason model category is a (Quillen) model category such that functorial factorizations exist.

## Properties

A functor category with values in a Thomason model category is automatically again a Thomason model category and hence yields a notion of global model structure on functors.

Mark Hovey later popularized this addition, including the data of functorial factorizations (and not just their existence) into his definition of a model category (he attributed this addition to Dwyer–Hirschhorn–Kan–Smith).
