A rigid object in a precategory is an object whose automorphism group is trivial.


The predicate of being rigid

module _
  {l1 l2 : Level} (C : Precategory l1 l2) (x : obj-Precategory C)

  is-rigid-obj-prop-Precategory : Prop l2
  is-rigid-obj-prop-Precategory = is-contr-Prop (iso-Precategory C x x)

  is-rigid-obj-Precategory : UU l2
  is-rigid-obj-Precategory = type-Prop is-rigid-obj-prop-Precategory

  is-prop-is-rigid-obj-Precategory : is-prop is-rigid-obj-Precategory
  is-prop-is-rigid-obj-Precategory =
    is-prop-type-Prop is-rigid-obj-prop-Precategory

The type of rigid objects in a precategory

rigid-obj-Precategory : {l1 l2 : Level} (C : Precategory l1 l2)  UU (l1  l2)
rigid-obj-Precategory C = Σ (obj-Precategory C) (is-rigid-obj-Precategory C)

module _
  {l1 l2 : Level} (C : Precategory l1 l2)

  obj-rigid-obj-Precategory : rigid-obj-Precategory C  obj-Precategory C
  obj-rigid-obj-Precategory = pr1

  is-rigid-rigid-obj-Precategory :
    (x : rigid-obj-Precategory C) 
    is-rigid-obj-Precategory C (obj-rigid-obj-Precategory x)
  is-rigid-rigid-obj-Precategory = pr2
