What is Nelson's admissibility condition?



Description: 
In his Ph.D.thesis [3], Nelson MartinsFerreira introduced a technical condition (for a certain type of diagram in a category) which he called admissibility. His first aim was to efficiently describe internal categorical structures, but the flexibility of the condition allowed him to use it for expressing commutativity conditions as well. Admissibility allowed us to conveniently describe the socalled Smith is Huq condition [5, 2] and its close relationship with weighted commutativity [1, 6]. We were, however, not entirely happy to be using a pure technical definition which at first sight does not seem to have a conceptual meaning. Clearly it should model commuting in some sense, but for which kind of objects? The aim of my talk is to explain that admissibility is indeed a commutativity condition, namely for the same objects that answer the question raised in [4].
