on chain complexes/model structure on cosimplicial abelian groups
related by the Dold-Kan correspondence
The model structure on reduced simplicial sets is a presentation of the full sub-(∞,1)-category
∞Grpd${}^{*/}_{\geq 1} \hookrightarrow$ ∞Grpd${}^{*/}$ $\simeq$ Top${}^{*/}$
of pointed ∞-groupoids on those that are connected.
By the looping and delooping-equivalence, this is equivalent to the (∞,1)-category of ∞-groups and this equivalence is presented by a Quillen equivalence to the model structure on simplicial groups.
A reduced simplicial set is a simplicial set $S$ with a single vertex, hence with $X_0$ the singleton set
Write $sSet_0 \subset$ sSet for the full subcategory of the category of simplicial sets on those that are reduced.
There is a model category structure on $sSet_0$ (def. ) whose
weak equivalences
and cofibrations
are those in the classical model structure on simplicial sets (i.e. the weak homotopy equivalences and the monomorphisms, respectively.)
This appears as (Goerss & Jardine, Ch V, Prop. 6.2).
Under the forgetful functor $U \colon sSet_0 \hookrightarrow sSet$
In particular
The first statment appears as (Goerss & Jardine, Ch. V, Lemma 6.6.). The second is an immediate consequence. It appears as (Goerss & Jardine, Ch. V, Corollary 6.8).
Let $f \colon X \longrightarrow Y$ be a fibration in the model structure on reduced simplicial sets (Prop. ) such that both $X$ and $Y$ are Kan complexes. Then $f$ is a Kan fibration precisely if it induces a surjection on the first simplicial homotopy group $\pi_1(f) \colon \pi_1(X) \twoheadrightarrow \pi_1(Y)$.
(Goerss & Jardine, Ch. V, Cor. 6.9)
As an example:
Let $\mathcal{G}_1 \xrightarrow{\phi} \mathcal{G}_2$ be a homomorphism of simplicial groups which is a Kan fibration. Then the induced morphism of simplicial classifying spaces $\overline{W}\mathcal{G}_1 \xrightarrow{ \overline{W}(\phi)} \overline{W}\mathcal{G}_2$ is a Kan fibration if and only if $\phi$ is a surjection on connected components: $\pi_0(\phi) \colon \pi_0(\mathcal{G}_1) \twoheadrightarrow{\;} \pi_0(\mathcal{G}_1)$.
Since $\overline{W}(-)$ is a right Quillen functor to the model structure on reduced simplicial sets (Prop. ) it follows that $\overline{W}(\phi)$ is in any case a fibration in that model structure. Hence Cor. implies that $\overline{W}(\phi)$ is a Kan fibration precisely of $\pi_1 \circ \overline{W}(\phi)$ is surjective. But $\pi_1 \circ \overline{W} = \pi_0$, by this Prop.
into pointed simplicial sets (where $i$ the obvious inclusion, and $cn$ forms the 1st Eilenberg subcomplex over the basepoint) is a Quillen adjunction (with respect to the reduced model structure from prop. and the coslice model structure under the point of the classical model structure on simplicial sets).
By prop. the left adjoint preserves cofibrations and acyclic cofibrations (in fact all weak equivalences).
The operation of reduced suspension $\Sigma_\ast$ (smash product with the simplicial circle $S^1 \coloneqq \Delta[1]/\partial \Delta[1]$) and forming loop space $\Omega_\ast$ (pointed mapping space out of the circle) constitute a Quillen adjunction
By the internal hom construction we have the adjunction
But by the formula at smash product the reduced suspension clearly lands in reduced simplicial sets, so that we do have the restricted adjunction as claimed. Now by the fact that the classical model structure on simplicial sets is a simplicial model category, the above is a Quillen adjunction and $\Sigma_\ast$ preserves cofibrations and acyclic cofibrations. Hence, by prop. , so does its factorization through the model structure on reduced simplicial sets.
The operations of reduced suspension and loop space (co-)restrict to a Quillen adjunction on the reduced model structure (prop. ) itself, by composition of the Quillen adjunctions from prop. and prop. .
(Quillen equivalence between simplicial groups and reduced simplicial sets)
The simplicial loop space functor $G$ and the simplicial classifying space-construction $\overline{W}(-)$ constitute a Quillen equivalence
between the model structure on reduced simplicial sets from prop. and model structure on simplicial groups.
This appears as (Goerss-Jardine, ch. V prop. 6.3).
