Remark Let $n \geq 1$ and let $\mathscr {F}: [n] \rightarrow \operatorname{Set_{\Delta }}$ be a diagram of simplicial sets which we denote by

\[ X(0) \rightarrow X(1) \rightarrow X(2) \rightarrow \cdots \rightarrow X(n). \]

Let $\mathscr {F}': [n] \rightarrow \operatorname{Set_{\Delta }}$ denote the constant diagram taking the value $X(0)$. Let $\mathscr {F}_0 \subseteq \mathscr {F}$ be the subfunctor given by the diagram

\[ \emptyset \rightarrow X(1) \rightarrow X(2) \rightarrow \cdots \rightarrow X(n), \]

and define $\mathscr {F}'_0 \subseteq \mathscr {F}'$ similarly, so that we have a pushout diagram

\[ \xymatrix@R =50pt@C=50pt{ \mathscr {F}'_0 \ar [r] \ar [d] & \mathscr {F}_0 \ar [d] \\ \mathscr {F}' \ar [r] & \mathscr {F} } \]

in the category $\operatorname{Fun}( [n], \operatorname{Set_{\Delta }})$. Applying Remark, we deduce that the induced diagram of simplicial sets

\[ \xymatrix@R =50pt@C=50pt{ \underset { \longrightarrow }{\mathrm{holim}}(\mathscr {F}'_0) \ar [r] \ar [d] & \underset { \longrightarrow }{\mathrm{holim}}(\mathscr {F}_0) \ar [d] \\ \underset { \longrightarrow }{\mathrm{holim}}(\mathscr {F}') \ar [r] & \underset { \longrightarrow }{\mathrm{holim}}(\mathscr {F}) } \]

is also a pushout square. Using Example and Remark, we can rewrite this diagram as

\[ \xymatrix@R =50pt@C=50pt{ \operatorname{N}_{\bullet }( \{ 1 < 2 < \cdots < n \} ) \times X(0) \ar [r] \ar [d] & \underset { \longrightarrow }{\mathrm{holim}}( X(1) \rightarrow \cdots \rightarrow X(n) ) \ar [d] \\ \Delta ^ n \times X(0) \ar [r] & \underset { \longrightarrow }{\mathrm{holim}}( X(0) \rightarrow \cdots \rightarrow X(n) ). } \]
