Let $\mathscr {C}$ denote a finite group scheme-theoretical category over an algebraically closed field of characteristic $p\ge 0$ as introduced by the first author. For any indecomposable exact module category over $\mathscr {C}$, we classify its simple objects and provide an expression for their projective covers, in terms of double cosets and pr...

We extend [3, Theorem 4.5] and [16, Theorem 4.22] to positive characteristic (i.e., to the finite, not necessarily fusion, case). Namely, we prove that if D is a finite non-degenerate braided tensor category over an algebraically closed field k of characteristic p>0, containing a Tannakian Lagrangian subcategory Rep(G), where G is a finite k-group...

We extend \cite{G} to the nonsemisimple case. We define and study exact factorizations $\B=\A\bullet \C$ of a finite tensor category $\B$ into a product of two tensor subcategories $\A,\C\subset \B$, and relate exact factorizations of finite tensor categories to exact sequences of finite tensor categories with respect to exact module categories \ci...

We extend \cite[Theorem 4.5]{DGNO} and \cite[Theorem 4.22]{LKW} to positive characteristic (i.e., to the finite, not necessarily fusion, case). Namely, we prove that if $\D$ is a finite non-degenerate braided tensor category over an algebraically closed field $k$ of characteristic $p>0$, containing a Tannakian Lagrangian subcategory $\Rep(G)$, wher...

Let k be an algebraically closed field of characteristic 0 or p>2. Let G be an affine supergroup scheme over k. We classify the indecomposable exact module categories over the tensor category sCohf(G) of (coherent sheaves of) finite dimensional O(G)-supermodules in terms of (H,Ψ)-equivariant coherent sheaves on G. We deduce from it the classificati...

We use \cite{G} to study the algebra structure of twisted cotriangular Hopf algebras ${}_J\mathcal{O}(G)_{J}$, where $J$ is a Hopf $2$-cocycle for a connected nilpotent algebraic group $G$ over $\mathbb{C}$. In particular, we show that ${}_J\mathcal{O}(G)_{J}$ is an affine Noetherian domain with Gelfand-Kirillov dimension $\dim(G)$, and that if $G$...

We prove an analog of Deligne’s theorem for finite symmetric tensor categories [Formula: see text] with the Chevalley property over an algebraically closed field [Formula: see text] of characteristic [Formula: see text]. Namely, we prove that every such category [Formula: see text] admits a symmetric fiber functor to the symmetric tensor category [...

Let $k$ be an algebraically closed field of characteristic $0$ or $p>2$. Let $\mathcal{G}$ be an affine supergroup scheme over $k$. We classify the indecomposable exact module categories over the tensor category ${\rm sCoh}_{\rm f}(\mathcal{G})$ of (coherent sheaves of) finite dimensional $\mathcal{O}(\mathcal{G})$-supermodules in terms of $(\mathc...

We prove that every finite symmetric integral tensor category $\mathcal{C}$ with the Chevalley property over an algebraically closed field $k$ of characteristic $p>2$ admits a symmetric fiber functor to the category of supervector spaces. This proves Ostrik’s conjecture [25, Conjecture 1.3] in this case. Equivalently, we prove that there exists a u...

We prove an analog of Deligne's theorem for finite symmetric tensor categories $\mathcal{C}$ with the Chevalley property over an algebraically closed field $k$ of characteristic $2$. Namely, we prove that every such category $\mathcal{C}$ admits a symmetric fiber functor to the symmetric tensor category $\mathcal{D}$ of representations of the trian...

We prove that every finite symmetric integral tensor category $\mathcal{C}$ with the Chevalley property over an algebraically closed field $k$ of characteristic $p>2$ admits a symmetric fiber functor to $\text{sVec}$. This proves Ostrik's conjecture \cite[Conjecture 1.3]{o} in this case. Equivalently, we prove that there exists a unique finite supe...

We generalize the theory of the second invariant cohomology group $H^2_{\rm inv}(G)$ for finite groups $G$, developed in \cite{GK}, to the case of affine algebraic groups $G$, using the methods of \cite{EG1,EG2,G}. In particular, we show that for connected affine algebraic groups $G$ over an algebraically closed field of characteristic $0$, the map...

Let $W$ be a finite dimensional purely odd supervector space over $\mathbb{C}$, and let $\sRep(W)$ be the finite symmetric tensor category of finite dimensional superrepresentations of the finite supergroup $W$. We show that the set of equivalence classes of finite non-degenerate braided tensor categories $\C$ containing $\sRep(W)$ as a Lagrangian...

We generalize the definition of an exact sequence of tensor categories due to
Brugui\`eres and Natale, and introduce a new notion of an exact sequence of
(finite) tensor categories with respect to a module category. We give three
definitions of this notion and show their equivalence. In particular, the
Deligne tensor product of tensor categories gi...

We study good (i.e., semisimple) reductions of semisimple rigid tensor
categories modulo primes. A prime p is called good for a semisimple rigid
tensor category C if such a reduction exists (otherwise, it is called bad). It
is clear that a good prime must be relatively prime to the M\"uger squared norm
|V|^2 of any simple object V of C. We show, us...

We develop a theory of descent and forms of tensor categories over arbitrary
fields. We describe the general scheme of classification of such forms using
algebraic and homotopical language, and give examples of explicit
classification of forms. We also discuss the problem of categorification of
weak fusion rings, and for the simplest families of su...

Let \lambda be a partition of a positive integer n. Let C be a symmetric rigid tensor category over a field k of characteristic 0 or char(k)>n, and let V be an object of C. In our main result (Theorem 4.3) we introduce a finite set of integers F(\lambda) and prove that if the Schur functor \mathbb{S}_{\lambda} V of V is semisimple and the dimension...

We first show that every group-theoretical category is graded by a certain double coset ring. As a consequence, we obtain a necessary and sufficient condition for a group-theoretical category to be nilpotent. We then give an explicit description of the simple objects in a group-theoretical category (following [O2]) and of the group of invertible ob...

This work is a detailed version of arXiv:0704.0195 [math.QA]. We introduce a new notion of the core of a braided fusion category. It allows to separate the part of a braided fusion category that does not come from finite groups. We also give a comprehensive and self-contained exposition of the known results on braided fusion categories without assu...

Let C be a fusion category faithfully graded by a finite group G and let D be the trivial component of this grading. The center Z(C) of C is shown to be canonically equivalent to a G-equivariantization of the relative center Z_D(C). We use this result to obtain a criterion for C to be group-theoretical and apply it to Tambara-Yamagami fusion catego...

In this paper we extend categorically the notion of a finite nilpotent group to fusion categories. To this end, we first analyze the trivial component of the universal grading of a fusion category C, and then introduce the upper central series of C. For fusion categories with commutative Grothendieck rings (e.g., braided fusion categories) we also...

We classify braided tensor categories over C of exponential growth which are quasisymmetric, i.e., the squared braiding is the identity on the product of any two simple objects. This generalizes the classification results of Deligne on symmetric categories of exponential growth, and of Drinfeld on quasitriangular quasi-Hopf algebras. In particular,...

Let g be a finite dimensional complex semisimple Lie algebra, and let V be a finite dimensional represenation of g. We give a closed formula for the mth Frobenius-Schur indicator, m>1, of V in representation-theoretic terms. We deduce that the indicators take integer values, and that for a large enough m, the mth indicator of V equals the dimension...

We characterize a natural class of modular categories of prime power Frobenius-Perron dimension as representation categories of twisted doubles of finite p-groups. We also show that a nilpotent braided fusion category C admits an analogue of the Sylow decomposition. If the simple objects of C have integral Frobenius-Perron dimensions then C is grou...

Let p be a prime, and let RG(p) denote the set of equivalence classes of radically graded finite dimensional quasi-Hopf algebras over C, whose radical has codimension p. The purpose of this paper is to classify finite dimensional quasi-Hopf algebras A whose radical is a quasi-Hopf ideal and has codimension p; that is, A with gr(A) in RG(p), where g...

Let p be a prime, and denote the class of radically graded finite dimensional quasi-Hopf algebras over C, whose radical has codimension p, by RG(p). The purpose of this paper is to continue the structure theory of finite dimensional quasi-Hopf algebras started in math.QA/0310253 (p=2) and math.QA/0402159 (p>2). More specifically, we completely desc...

It is shown in math.QA/0301027 that a finite dimensional quasi-Hopf algebra with radical of codimension 1 is semisimple and 1-dimensional. On the other hand, there exist quasi-Hopf (in fact, Hopf) algebras, whose radical has codimension 2. Namely, it is known that these are exactly the Nichols Hopf algebras H_{2^n} of dimension 2^n, n\ge 1 (one for...

In this paper we provide a complete classification of fusion categories of Frobenius-Perron (FP) dimension pq, where p<q are distinct primes, thus giving a categorical generalization of math.QA/9801129. As a corollary we also obtain the classification of semisimple quasi-Hopf algebras of dimension pq. A concise formulation of our main result is: Le...

In this paper we contribute to the classification of Hopf algebras of dimension pq, where p,q are distinct prime numbers. More precisely, we prove that if p and q are odd primes with p<q<2p+3, then any complex Hopf algebra of dimension pq is semisimple and hence isomorphic to either a group algebra or to the dual of a group algebra by the previous...

In this paper we study the properties of Drinfeld's twisting for finite-dimensional Hopf algebras. We determine how the integral of the dual to a unimodular Hopf algebra H changes under twisting of H. We show that the classes of cosemisimple unimodular, cosemisimple involutive, cosemisimple quasitriangular finite-dimensional Hopf algebras are stabl...

We explain that a new theorem of Deligne on symmetric tensor categories implies, in a straightforward manner, that any finite dimensional triangular Hopf algebra over an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero has Chevalley property, and in particular the list of finite dimensional triangular Hopf algebras over such a field given in math....

In formulating a generalized framework to study certain noncommutative algebras naturally arising in representation theory, K. A. Brown asked if every finitely generated Hopf algebra satisfying a polynomial identity was finite over a normal commutative Hopf subalgebra. In this note we show that Radford's biproduct, applied to the enveloping algebra...

Following the ideas of our previous works, we study families of triangular Hopf algebras obtained by twisting finite supergroups
by a twist lying entirely in the odd part. These families are parameterized by data (G, V, u, B), where G is a finite group, V its finite-dimensional representation, u a central element of G of order 2 acting by −1 on V,...

Recall (math.QA/9812151) that the exponent of a finite-dimensional complex Hopf algebra H is the order of the Drinfeld element u of the Drinfeld double D(H) of H. Recall also that while this order may be infinite, the eigenvalues of u are always roots of unity (math.QA/9812151, Theorem 4.8); i.e., some power of u is always unipotent. We are thus na...

Recall that a triangular Hopf algebra A is said to have the Chevalley property if the tensor product of any two simple A-modules is semisimple, or, equivalently, if the radical of A is a Hopf ideal. There are two reasons to study this class of triangular Hopf algebras: First, it contains all known examples of finite-dimensional triangular Hopf alge...

We say that a Hopf algebra has the Chevalley property if the tensor product of any two simple modules over this Hopf algebra is semisimple. In this paper we classify finite dimensional triangular Hopf algebras with the Chevalley property, over the field of complex numbers. Namely, we show that all of them are twists of triangular Hopf algebras with...

It is well known that if two finite groups have the same symmetric tensor categories of representations over C, then they are isomorphic.We study the following question:When do two finite groups G1, G2 have the same tensor categories of representations over C (without regard for the commutativity constraint)? We call two groups with such property i...

A fundamental problem in the theory of Hopf algebras is the classification and explicit construction of finite-dimensional quasitriangular Hopf algebras over C. These Hopf algebras constitute a very important class of Hopf algebras, introduced by Drinfeld (e.g. the quantum double of a Hopf algebra). However, this intriguing problem turns out to be...

One of the most fundamental problems in the theory of finite- dimensional Hopf algebras is their classification over an algebraically closed field k of characteristic 0. This problem is extremely difficult, hence people restrict it to certain classes of Hopf algebras, e.g. to semisimple ones. Semisimple Hopf algebras deserve to be considered as "qu...

In this paper we determine when Lusztig’s U q ( s l n ) ′ U_q(sl_n)’ has all the desired properties necessary to define invariants of knots, links and 3-manifolds. Specifically, we determine when it is ribbon, unimodular and factorizable. We also compute the integrals and distinguished elements involved.

In 1997 we proved that any triangular semisimple Hopf algebra over an algebraically closed field k of characteristic 0 is obtained from the group algebra k[G] of a finite group G, by twisting its comultiplication by a twist in the sense of Drinfeld. In this paper, we generalize this result to not necessarily finite-dimensional cotriangular Hopf alg...

Recall that a finite group is called perfect if it does not have non-trivial 1-dimensional representations (over the field of complex numbers C). By analogy, let us say that a finite dimensional Hopf algebra H over C is perfect if any 1-dimensional H-module is trivial. Let us say that H is biperfect if both H and H^* are perfect. Note that, H is bi...

In this paper we classify triangular semisimple and cosemisimple Hopf algebras over any algebraically closed field k. Namely, we construct, for each positive integer N, relatively prime to the characteristic of k if it is positive, a bijection between the set of isomorphism classes of triangular semisimple and cosemisimple Hopf algebras of dimensio...

One of the classical notions of group theory is the notion of the exponent of a group. The exponent of a group is the least common multiple of orders of its elements. In this paper we generalize the notion of exponent to Hopf algebras. We give five equivalent definitions of the exponent. Two of them are: 1) the exponent of H equals the order of the...

In a previous paper we prove that any semisimple triangular Hopf algebra A over an algebraically closed field of characteristic 0 (say the field of complex numbers C) is obtained from a finite group after twisting the ordinary comultiplication of its group algebra in the sense of Drinfeld; that is A=C[G]^J for some finite group G and a twist J\in C...

The goal of this paper is to give a new method of constructing finite-dimensional semisimple triangular Hopf algebras, including minimal ones which are non-trivial (i.e. not group algebras). The paper shows that such Hopf algebras are quite abundant. It also discovers an unexpected connection of such Hopf algebras with bijective 1-cocycles on finit...

Recently, important progress has been made in the study of finite-dimensional semisimple Hopf algebras over a field of characteristic zero. Yet, very little is known over a field of positive characteristic. In this paper we prove some results on finite-dimensional semisimple and cosemisimple Hopf algebras A over a field of positive characteristic,...

Masuoka proved that for a prime p, semisimple Hopf algebras of dimension 2p over an algebraically closed field k of characteristic 0, are trivial (i.e. are either group algebras or the dual of group algebras). Westreich and the second author obtained the same result for dimension 3p, and then pushed the analysis further and among the rest obtained...

Kaplansky conjectured that if H is a finite-dimensional semisimple Hopf algebra over an algebraically closed field k of characteristic 0, then H is of Frobenius type (i.e. if V is an irreducible representation of H then dimV divides dimH). It was proved by Montgomery and Witherspoon that the conjecture is true for H of dimension p^n, p prime, and b...
