### Understanding the computation of the center of Tambara-Yamagami fusion categories when realized as C* categories

Recall that the Tambara-Yamagami categories are those with fusion ring $\mathbb{Z}[A \cup m]$ where $A$ is an abelian group and $m$ is a non-invertible (simple) object such that $ma = am = m$ for all ...

### Noncommutative geometry and category theory

The point in which one starts to talk about noncommutative geometry is the Gelfand Najmark theorem. It establishes an equivalence of the catgeories of commutative (non)unital $C^*$-algebras and the ...

### 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$.

### Defining holomorphic functions in terms of Banach algebras, and similarly for C*-algebras

Let $C$ be the category of commutative Banach algebras and let $U : C \to \text{Set}$ be the usual forgetful functor. The holomorphic functional calculus guarantees that every holomorphic function $f ...

### Mono- and epi-morphisms for C*-algebras

This question is motivated by Yemon Choi's answer here: Epimorphisms have dense range in TopHausGrp?
It's well-known that the category of unital commutative C*-algebras and $*$-homomorphisms is dual ...

### Quantum channels as categories: question 1.

A quantum channel is a mapping between Hilbert spaces, $\Phi : L(\mathcal{H}_{A}) \to L(\mathcal{H}_{B})$, where $L(\mathcal{H}_{i})$ is the family of operators on $\mathcal{H}_{i}$. In general, we ...
