Diagonal model structures

J. F. Jardine

The category of bisimplicial presheaves carries a model structure for which the weak equivalences are defined by the diagonal functor and the cofibrations are monomorphisms. This model structure has the most cofibrations of a large family of model structures with weak equivalences defined by the diagonal. The diagonal structure for bisimplicial presheaves specializes to a diagonal model structure for bisimplicial sets, for which the fibrations are the Kan fibrations.
