Title: A Tangent Category of Fibrant Objects
Abstract: We shall consider Getzler and Behrend’s construction of a category of fibrant objects from a descent category in the setting of tangent categories. This will generate a category of fibrant objects with a well defined tangent structure. A particularly important class of objects will be those equipped with an infinite family of higher order horizontal connections.
