### What homomorphisms $G \to BrPic(\mathcal{C})$ correspond to group-theoretical $G$-extensions of $\mathcal{C}$?

For a fusion category $\mathcal{C}$ the Brauer-Picard group $\text{BrPic}(\mathcal{C})$ is the group of all invertible $\mathcal{C}$-bimodule categories under multplication $\boxtimes_\mathcal{C}$.

### Unitary structures on fusion categories

A unitary fusion category is a fusion category with a $C^*$-tensor structure.
Hence, in principle, a fusion category could have more than one unitary structure. Does exist a fusion category with more ...

### An embedding theorem for a fusion ring planar algebra?

We first recall the embedding theorem for finite depth subfactor planar algebras:
The planar algebra generated by a (finite depth) subfactor, is embeddable into the planar algebra generated by its ...

### Existence of a Kac algebra for a given fusion ring in a particular class

A $n$-dimensional Kac algebra (i.e., a Hopf C*-algebra), admits finitely many irreducible representations, whose cardinal $r$ is called its rank, the increasing sequence $(d_{1},d_{2},d_{3}, ..., ...

### Signs associated to self-dual simple objects in a fusion category

Every self-dual simple object $X$ in a fusion category can canonically be assigned a number $a$, from its "snake" associator element:
The square of $a$ equals Muger's "squared dimension" of $X$, an ...

### Do purification and equivariantization commute?

Suppose that we have an action of a group $G$ on a (quasi-)Hopf algebra $H$, so that we can construct $H\rtimes G$ as in Majid's Cross Products by Braided Groups and Bosonization. It is known that ...

### “Prime” fusion rings

Surely this concept is known! (But I don't recall seeing it - maybe under another name? But "prime" is the obvious name choice.)
Example. Open the Gepner/Kapustin paper at ...

### Is there a non-trivial maximal Hopf algebra?

Let $H$ be a Hopf algebra over an algebraically
closed field $\mathbb{K}$ of characteristic $0$.
Maximal means without left coideal subalgebra $I$ (i.e. $\Delta(I) \subset H \otimes I$) other than ...

Warning: this post is the "numerical" analog of
Are there workable algebraic geometry approaches for the pentagon equation?
I've replaced "algebraic geometry" by "numerical" in its content,

### Is the category of spherical fusion categories regular? (i.e. is image factorisation possible?)

Consider the category where objects are strict spherical fusion categories and morphisms are strict spherical functors (preserving cups and caps). I am wondering whether there is some kind of image ...

### Is an integral simple fusion ring, categorifiable?

A fusion ring $\mathcal{F}$ (see here p 28) is integral if the Perron-Frobenius dimension $d(h_i)$ of its basic elements $\{h_1,...,h_r\}$, are integers. Its rank is $r$ and its dimension is $\sum ...

### About the classification of infinite depth irreducible finite index maximal subfactors

The Temperley Lieb subfactors $A_{\infty}$ are the first examples of infinite depth irreducible finite index maximal subfactors. We can see these subfactors as coming from the simple Lie group ...

### When is the category of endofunctors braided? When is it ribbon? Fusion? Modular?

Given a category $\mathcal{C}$, we can define the category of endofunctors $\operatorname{Cat}(\mathcal{C})$, with objects functors $F: \mathcal{C} \to \mathcal{C}$ and morphisms natural ...

### Weakly group theoretical fusion category and subsystems

Let $\mathcal{C}$ be a fusion category and $H$ a semi-simple finite weak Hopf algebra such that $\mathcal{C}(H) = \mathcal{C}$.
Suppose that for every nontrivial left coideal subalgebras $S$ of $H$ or ...

### Fusion categories with permutation “associativity matrices”

Let $\mathcal{C}$ be a fusion category and let $(H_1,...,H_r)$ be its simple objects.
$\mathcal{C}$ is non-pointed if at least one of its simple object has Perron-Frobenius dimension $ \neq 1$.

### How simplify the pentagonal equation from two fusion rings?

A semi-simple finite dimensional Hopf algebra $\mathbb{A}$, and its dual $\mathbb{A}^{*}$ produce two fusion categories $\mathcal{C}$ and $\mathcal{C}^{*}$ and then two fusion rings $\mathcal{R}_{1}$ ...
