In topos theory we sometimes encounter the procedure of “externalising” an internal site. I will go through the first step of this process, which involves establishing an equivalence between internal and “external” presheaves. The central notion in this procedure is that of the semi-direct product of categories. I will define internal categories (briefly) and internal presheaves, and then proceed to show how the definition of semi-direct product has to be what it is in order to establish the aforementioned equivalence.
