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 ...

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 ...

Categorifying the Reals via von Neumann Algebras?

So one way to categorify the natural numbers is to replace them with vector spaces. Then the dimension of the vector space reproduces the natural number. More generally you can categorify integers to ...
