Abstract

With a view to further applications, we give a self-contained account of indexed limits for 2-categories, including necessary and sufficient conditions for 2-categorical completeness. Many important 2-categories fail to be complete but do admit a wide class of limits. Accordingly, we introduce a variety of particular 2-categorical limits of practical importance, and show that certain of these suffice for the existence of indexed lax- and pseudo-limits. Other important 2-categories fail to admit even pseudo-limits, but do admit the weaker bilimits; we end by discussing these.
