## Abstract:

Let $X^\bullet$ be a cosimplicial object in a pointed $\infty$-category. We show that the fiber of $\mathrm {Tot}_m(X^\bullet ) \to \mathrm {Tot}_n(X^\bullet )$ depends only on the pointed cosimplicial object $\Omega ^k X^\bullet$ and is in particular a $k$-fold loop object, where $k = 2n - m+2$. The approach is explicit obstruction theory with quasicategories. We also discuss generalizations to other types of homotopy limits and colimits.## References
