### Frobenius monads and groupoids

For a while, I was looking for a Frobenius monad on Set. It doesn't exist as pointed out here. I am now looking at the 2-category of groupoids. Does the 2-category of groupoids admit a Frobenius ...

### Structure of Lagrangian algebras in the center of a fusion category

(1) Let $\mathcal F$ be a spherical fusion tensor category. Then Müger showed that
$R=\bigoplus_{H\in\mathrm{Irr}(\mathcal F)} H\boxtimes H^\mathrm{op}$ canonically has the structure of a Frobenius ...

### Are the string diagrams for the Frobenius Algebra an example of a Polynomial Functor?

We know that Frobenius objects in a monoidal category obey a diagrammatic string calculus. We also know that trees are polynomial functors (Kock - Polynomial functors and trees). The string calculus ...

### What is the relationship between Frobenius extensions and Separable extensions

Let $R\to S$ be an extension of possibly non-commutative rings. I am interested in the relationship between $R\to S$ being Frobenius and it being separable.
If it is a Frobenius extension, then there ...

### Smash Product of Frobenius Algebras

We have a smash product of Hopf algebras if one acts on other (namely making it module algebra, coalgebra and Hopf algebra) with a compatibility condition (Theorem 17).
Now I ask the same question ...

### Partial order on partitions and symmetric group algebra

Let $n$ be a natural number. Consider a set $\Lambda_n$ of partitions of $n$ into a sum of natural numbers, like $n = \lambda_1 + \cdots +\lambda_k$ (A set of small lambdas representing a partition is ...

### On finding simpler symmetries to differential equations

I have developed a differential equation for the variation of a star's semi-major axis with respect to its eccentricity.
It is as follows:
$$\frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{12}{19}\frac{y\left(1+\left(\frac{73}{...

### Frobenius structure for A_n singularities

I need to compute monodromy matrices $M(v)$, associated to a Frobenius structure for $A_n$ singularity with flat coordinates $v_1,\dots,v_n$, that is, $f(x)=x^{n+1}$. (due to Saito, Dubrovin etc.) ...

### Characterisation of Frobenius algebras via sequences

Given a commutative Frobenius algebra, finite dimensional over a field $k$.
We assume that the algebra is connected and in fact given by quiver and relations. Let $S$ be the unique simple modules of ...

### When the Lie algebra of matrices with zero last rows is Frobenius?

Let $\mathcal{A}_{n,k}$ be the Lie algebra of $n \times n$ matrices over $\mathbb{C}$ for which the last $k$ rows are equal to zero. Suppose that $k$ does not divide $n$. How to prove that $\mathcal{A}...
