We describe an approach to the classification of isomorphism types in various situations such as homotopy types of spaces with specific properties of vector spaces with specific algebraic structures. This approach captures common strategies of first simplifying the objects to be classified by say field extension localization and then “putting the pieces together” by appropriate limits of the simplified structures. This explains the sticking similarity of well-known classification results in widely different situations and allows paths to desired new results. The main work was done by Horev and Yanovski.
