Abstract

This paper studies the category of posets Pos as a model for the homotopy theory of spaces. We prove that: (i) Pos admits a (cofibrantly generated and proper) model structure and the inclusion functor Pos → Cat into Thomason's model category is a right Quillen equivalence, and (ii) there is a proper class of different choices of cofibrations for a model structure on Pos or Cat where the weak equivalences are defined by the nerve functor. We also discuss the homotopy theory of posets from the viewpoint of Alexandroff T0-spaces, and we apply a result of McCord to give a new proof of the classification theorems of Moerdijk and Weiss in the case of posets.
