Lemma 4.17.2. Let $H : \mathcal{I} \to \mathcal{J}$ be a functor of categories. Assume $\mathcal{I}$ is cofinal in $\mathcal{J}$. Then for every diagram $M : \mathcal{J} \to \mathcal{C}$ we have a canonical isomorphism

\[ \mathop{\mathrm{colim}}\nolimits _\mathcal {I} M \circ H = \mathop{\mathrm{colim}}\nolimits _\mathcal {J} M \]

if either side exists.
