model structures on dg-categories

The simplicial localization of the category of dg-categories at the class of Dwyer-Kan equivalences is the *(infinity,1)-category of dg-categories*. It is presented by the *Dwyer-Kan model structure* which we discuss below.

We also discuss two interesting left Bousfield localizations of this model structure which present reflective sub-(infinity,1)-categories.

(details to be filled in)

The weak equivalences are the Dwyer-Kan equivalences of dg-categories. The fibrations are the dg-functors that are surjective on all Hom complexes and isofibrations at the level of homotopy categories. The fibrant objects are the locally fibrant dg-categories, i.e. for which all mapping complexes are fibrant objects in the category of chain complexes.

This model structure is cofibrantly generated, see here.

The fibrant objects are the pretriangulated dg-categories.

The weak equivalences are the Morita equivalences, i.e. functors $u : A \to B$ inducing equivalences of derived dg-categories

$D(B) \to D(A).$

The fibrant objects are the idempotent complete? pretriangulated dg-categories.
