Extensions of Functors From Set to V-cat

3.pdf (0.6 MB)


We show that for a commutative quantale V every functor from Set to V-cat has an enriched left-Kan extension. As a consequence, coalgebras over Set are subsumed by coalgebras over V-cat. Moreover, one can build functors on V-cat by equipping Set-functors with a metric.
