A Classification of Small Linear Functors

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We extend Goodwillie's classification of finitary linear functors to arbitrary small functors. That is we show that every small linear simplicial functor from spectra to pointed simplicial sets is weakly equivalent to a filtered colimit of representable functors represented in cofibrant spectra. Moreover, we present this classification as a Quillen equivalence of the category of small functors from spectra to simplicial sets equipped with the linear model structure and the opposite of the pro-category of spectra with the strict model structure.
