In the third lecture, we define comma infinity-categories, which satisfy a particular weak 2-dimensional universal property in the homotopy 2-category. We illustrate the use of comma infinity-categories to encode the universal properties of (co)limits and adjointness. Because comma infinity-categories are preserved by all functors of infinity-cosmoi and reflected by certain weak equivalences of infinity-cosmoi, these characterizations form the foundations for "model independence’" results.
