We establish a version of quantum Howe duality with two general linear quantum enveloping algebras that involves a tensor product of Verma modules. We prove that the (colored higher) LKB representations arise from this duality and use this description to show that they are simple as modules for various subgroups of the braid group, including the pu...

We give a closed formula to evaluate exterior webs (also called MOY webs) and the associated Reshetikhin-Turaev link polynomials.

In this paper we study the asymptotic behavior of the number of summands in tensor products of finite dimensional representations of affine (semi)group (super)schemes and related objects.

We prove a nonsemisimple quantum version of Howe's duality with the rank 2n symplectic and the rank 2 special linear group acting on the exterior algebra of type C. We also discuss the first steps towards the symplectic analog of harmonic analysis on quantum spheres, give character formulas for various fundamental modules, and construct canonical b...

Weighted KLRW algebras are diagram algebras generalizing KLR algebras. This paper undertakes a systematic study of these algebras culminating in the construction of homogeneous affine cellular bases in affine types A and C , which immediately gives cellular bases for the cyclotomic quotients of these algebras. In addition, we construct subdivision...

We give explicit formulas for the asymptotic growth rate of the number of summands in tensor powers in certain monoidal categories with finitely many indecomposable objects, and related structures.

We classify rank one 2-representations of SL2, GL2 and SO3 web categories. The classification is inspired by similar results about quantum groups and given by reducing the problem to the classification of bilinear and trilinear forms, and is formulated such that it can be adapted to other web categories.

In this paper, we show that Soergel bimodules for finite Coxeter types have only finitely many equivalence classes of simple transitive 2‐representations and we complete their classification in all types but and .

In this paper we study the asymptotic behavior of the number of summands in tensor products of finite dimensional representations of affine (semi)group (super)schemes and related objects.

We explain how the theory of sandwich cellular algebras can be seen as a version of cell theory for algebras. We apply this theory to many examples such as Hecke algebras, and various monoid and diagram algebras.

For any Levi subalgebra of the form $\mathfrak{l}=\mathfrak{gl}_{l_{1}}\oplus\dots\oplus\mathfrak{gl}_{l_{d}}\subseteq\mathfrak{gl}_{n}$ we construct a quotient of the category of annular quantum $\mathfrak{gl}_{n}$ webs that is equivalent to the category of finite dimensional representations of quantum $\mathfrak{l}$ generated by exterior powers o...

This paper constructs homogeneous affine sandwich cellular bases of weighted KLRW algebras in types $B$, $A^{(2)}$, $D^{(2)}$ and finite subquivers. Our construction immediately gives homogeneous sandwich cellular bases for the finite dimensional quotients of these algebras. Since weighted KLRW algebras generalize KLR algebras, we also obtain the b...

The linear decomposition attack provides a serious obstacle to direct applications of noncommutative groups and monoids in cryptography. To overcome this issue we propose to look at monoids with only big representations, in the sense made precise in the paper, and undertake a systematic study of such monoids. One of our main tools is Green's theory...

In this paper we study categories of gln-webs which describe associated representation categories of the quantum group Uq(gln). We give a minimal presentation of the category of gln-webs over a field with generic quantum parameters. We additionally describe an integral presentation which differs from others in the literature because it is "as coeff...

Weighted KLRW algebras are diagram algebras generalizing KLR algebras. This paper undertakes a systematic study of these algebras culminating in the construction of homogeneous affine cellular bases in finite or affine types A and C, which immediately gives cellular bases for the cyclotomic quotients of these algebras. In addition, we construct sub...

In this paper, we discuss the generalization of finitary 2-representation theory of finitary 2-categories to finitary birepresentation theory of finitary bicategories. In previous papers on the subject, the classification of simple transitive 2-representations of a given 2-category was reduced to that for certain subquotients. These reduction resul...

Using diagrammatic methods, we define a quiver with relations depending on a prime p \mathsf {p} and show that the associated path algebra describes the category of tilting modules for S L 2 \mathrm {SL}_{2} in characteristic p \mathsf {p} . Along the way we obtain a presentation for morphisms between p \mathsf {p} -Jones–Wenzl projectors.

Using the non-semisimple Temperley-Lieb calculus, we study the additive and monoidal structure of the category of tilting modules for $\mathrm{SL}_{2}$ in the mixed case. This simultaneously generalizes the semisimple situation, the case of the complex quantum group at a root of unity, and the algebraic group case in positive characteristic. We des...

In this paper we study handlebody versions of classical diagram algebras, most prominently, handlebody versions of Temperley-Lieb, blob, Brauer/BMW, Hecke and Ariki-Koike algebras. Moreover, motivated by Green-Kazhdan-Lusztig's theory of cells, we reformulate the notion of (sandwich, inflated or affine) cellular algebras. We explain this reformulat...

In this note, we compute the centers of the categories of tilting modules for G = SL 2 in prime characteristic, of tilting modules for the corresponding quantum group at a complex root of unity, and of projective G g T -modules when g = 1, 2.

In this paper we generalize cellular algebras by allowing different partial orderings relative to fixed idempotents. For these relative cellular algebras we classify and construct simple modules, and we obtain other characterizations in analogy to cellular algebras. We also give several examples of algebras that are relative cellular, but not cellu...

In this paper, we discuss the generalization of finitary $2$-representation theory of finitary $2$-categories to finitary birepresentation theory of finitary bicategories. In previous papers on the subject, the classification of simple transitive $2$-representations of a given $2$-category was reduced to that for certain subquotients. These reducti...

In this note we compute the centers of the categories of tilting modules for G=SL2 in prime characteristic, of tilting modules for the corresponding quantum group at a complex root of unity, and of projective GgT-modules when g=1,2.

We give necessary and sufficient conditions for zigzag algebras and certain generalizations of them to be (relative) cellular, quasi-hereditary or Koszul.

We define a triply-graded invariant of links in a genus g handlebody, generalizing the colored HOMFLYPT (co)homology of links in the 3-ball. Our main tools are the description of these links in terms of a subgroup of the classical braid group, and a family of categorical actions built from complexes of (singular) Soergel bimodules.

Using diagrammatic methods, we define a quiver algebra depending on a prime p and show that it is the algebra underlying the category of tilting modules for SL(2) in characteristic p. Along the way we obtain a presentation for morphisms between p-Jones-Wenzl projectors.

In this paper we study the graded 2-representation theory of Soergel bimodules for a finite Coxeter group. We establish a precise connection between the graded 2-representation theory of this non-semisimple 2-category and the 2-representation theory of the associated semisimple asymptotic bicategory. This allows us to formulate a conjectural classi...

We give necessary and sufficient conditions for zigzag algebras and certain generalizations of them to be (relative) cellular, quasi-hereditary or Koszul.

The quantum Satake correspondence relates dihedral Soergel bimodules to the semisimple quotient of the quantum sl2 representation category. It also establishes a precise relation between the simple transitive 2-representations of both monoidal categories, which are indexed by bicolored ADE Dynkin diagrams.
Using the quantum Satake correspondence...

We define
web categories describing intertwiners for the
orthogonal and symplectic
Lie algebras, and, in the quantized setup,
for certain
orthogonal and symplectic coideal
subalgebras.
They generalize the
Brauer category, and allow us to
prove quantum versions of some
classical type BCD
Howe dualities.

We show how to use Jantzen's sum formula for Weyl modules to prove
semisimplicity criteria for endomorphism algebras of $\textbf{U}_q$-tilting
modules (for any field $\mathbb{K}$ and any parameter
$q\in\mathbb{K}-\{0,-1\}$). As an application, we recover the semisimplicity
criteria for the Hecke algebras of types $\textbf{A}$ and $\textbf{B}$, the...

We prove that the bigraded colored Khovanov-Rozansky type A link and tangle invariants are functorial with respect to link and tangle cobordisms.

We define web categories describing intertwiners for the orthogonal and symplectic Lie algebras, and, in the quantized setup, for certain orthogonal and symplectic coideal subalgebras. They generalize the Brauer category, and allow us to prove quantum versions of some classical type $\mathbf{B}\mathbf{C}\mathbf{D}$ Howe dualities.

Blanchet introduced certain singular cobordisms to fix the functoriality of Khovanov homology. In this paper we introduce graded algebras consisting of such singular cobordisms à la Blanchet. As the main result we explicitly describe these algebras in algebraic terms using the combinatorics of arc diagrams.

For any fiat 2-category C, we show how its simple transitive 2-representations can be constructed using co-algebra 1-morphisms in the injective abelianization of C. Dually, we show that these can also be constructed using algebra 1-morphisms in the projective abelianization of C. We also extend Morita-Takeuchi theory to our setup and work out sever...

We combinatorially describe the 2-category of singular cobordisms, called (rank one) foams, which governs the functorial version of Khovanov homology. As an application we topologically realize the type D arc algebra using this singular cobordism construction .

In this paper we complete the
ADE-like classification of simple transitive
2-representations of Soergel bimodules in finite dihedral type, under the assumption of
gradeability. In particular, we use bipartite graphs and zigzag algebras of ADE type to give
an explicit construction of a graded (non-strict) version of all these 2-representations.

We define parameter dependent
gl2-foams and their associated web
and arc algebras and verify that they specialize to several known
sl2 or gl2 constructions related to higher link and tangle invariants. Moreover, we show
that all these specializations are equivalent, and we deduce several applications,
e.g. for the associated link and tangle invaria...

We use super
q-Howe duality to provide diagrammatic presentations of an
idempotented form of the Hecke algebra and of categories of
glN-modules (and, more generally,
gl(N|M)-modules) whose objects are tensor generated by exterior and symmetric powers of the
vector representations. As an application, we give a representation theoretic explanation a...

We use the theory of Uq-tilting modules to construct cellular bases for centralizer algebras. Our methods are quite general and work for any quantum group Uq attached to a Cartan matrix and include the non-semisimple cases for q being a root of unity and ground fields of positive characteristic. Our approach also generalize to certain categories co...

We define and study the category of symmetric $\mathfrak{sl}_2$-webs. This
category is a combinatorial description of the category of all finite
dimensional quantum $\mathfrak{sl}_2$-modules. Explicitly, we show that (the
additive closure of) the symmetric $\mathfrak{sl}_2$-spider is (braided
monoidally) equivalent to the latter. Our main tool is a...

We give an explicit graded cellular basis of the 𝔰𝔩3-web algebra KS.
In order to do this, we identify Kuperberg's basis for the 𝔰𝔩3-web space WS with a version of Leclerc-Toffin's intermediate crystal basis and we identify Brundan, Kleshchev and Wang's degree of tableaux with the weight of flows on webs and the q-degree of foams.
We use these obser...

We extend Bar-Natan's cobordism based categorification of the Jones polynomial to virtual links. Our topological complex allows a direct extension of the classical Khovanov complex (h=t=0), the variant of Lee (h=0,t=1) and other classical link homologies. We show that our construction allows, over rings of characteristic two, extensions with no cla...

In this paper we define an explicit basis for the
\mathfrak{gl}_n-web algebra H_n(\vec{k}) (the
\mathfrak{gl}_n generalization of Khovanov's arc
algebra) using categorified q-skew Howe duality.
Our construction is a \mathfrak{gl}_n-web version
of Hu-Mathas' graded cellular basis and has two major applications:
it gives rise to an explicit iso...

This thesis splits into two major parts. The connection between the two parts
is the notion of "categorification" which we shortly explain/recall in the
introduction.
In the first part of this thesis we extend Bar-Natan's cobordism based
categorification of the Jones polynomial to virtual links. Our topological
complex allows a direct extension of...

In this paper we use Kuperberg’s
$\mathfrak {sl}_3$
-webs and Khovanov’s
$\mathfrak {sl}_3$
-foams to define a new algebra
$K^S$
, which we call the
$\mathfrak {sl}_3$
-web algebra. It is the
$\mathfrak {sl}_3$
analogue of Khovanov’s arc algebra. We prove that
$K^S$
is a graded symmetric Frobenius algebra. Furthermore, we categori...
