Abstract
This is the first in a series of papers devoted to the theory of decomposition spaces, a general framework for incidence algebras and Möbius inversion, where algebraic identities are realised by taking homotopy cardinality of equivalences of 8-groupoids. A decomposition space is a simplicial 8-groupoid satisfying an exactness condition, weaker than the Segal condition, expressed in terms of active and inert maps in Image 1. Just as the Segal condition expresses composition, the new exactness co...
