I will describe a categorical approach to analytic geometry using the theory of quasi-abelian closed symmetric monoidal categories which works both for Archimedean and non-Archimdedean base fields. In particular I will show how the weak G-topologies of (dagger) affinoid subdomains can be characterized by homological method. I will end by briefly saying how to generalize these results for characterizing open embeddings of Stein spaces. This project is a collaboration with Oren Ben-Bassat and Kobi Kremnizer.
