Abstract

We introduce the notion of a bounded weight structure on a stable [infinity symbol]-category and prove a generalization of Waldhausen’s sphere theorem for the algebraic K-theory of higher categories. The algebraic K-theory of a stable [infinity symbol]-category with a bounded non-degenerate weight structure is proven to be equivalent to the algebraic K-theory of the heart of the weight structure. We relate this theorem to previous results as well as new applications.
