The Beck-Chevalley property for Goursat categories
Description:  We characterise regular Goursat categories through a specific stability property of regular epimorphisms with respect to pullbacks. Under the assumption of the existence of some pushouts this property can be also expressed as a restricted Beck-Chevalley condition, with respect to the fibration of points, for a special class of commutative squares. In the case of varieties of universal algebras these results give, in particular, a structural explanation of the existence of the ternary operations characterising 3-permutable varieties of universal algebras. We then prove that the reflector to any (regular epi)-reflective subcategory of a regular Goursat category preserves pullbacks of split epimorphisms. This implies that the so-called internal Galois pregroupoid of an extension is an internal groupoid.
