Tannakian Formalism for the Quaternions and Dihedral Group

Let $V_D$ and $V_Q$ be the two dimensional simple representations of $D_4$ and $Q_8$ respectively. Let $1_D$ and $1_Q$ denote their trivial representations. Suppose that there is a tensor equivalence ...

Conjecture of relation between residues of Feynman integrals and mixed Tate motives

1) Counterexamples were found in the paper Brown, Francis; Schnetz, Oliver: "A $K3$ in $\phi^4$". Duke Math. J. 161 (2012), no. 10, 1817–1862. It is now the general feeling that most $\phi^4$-Feynman ...

Is the category $\operatorname{sVect}$ an "algebraic closure" of $\operatorname{Vect}$?

$\newcommand\sVec{\mathrm{sVec}}\newcommand\Vec{\mathrm{Vec}}$Yes. Over an algebraically closed field of characteristic $0$, $\sVec$ is the algebraic closure of $\Vec$. By "algebraic closure" of $K$ I ...

Why linearization leads to arithmetization?

I think: The category of varieties over $\mathbb Q$ is already very arithmetic. One reason that the linearization is considered arithmetic is that so much of the tractable arithmetic information is ...

Tannakian Formalism for the Quaternions and Dihedral Group

The categories ${\rm Rep}(Q_8)$ and ${\rm Rep}(D_8)$ are not equivalent as tensor categories. They have the same Grothendieck ring, but they have non equivalent associators. As far as I am aware, it ...

Derived version of equivalence between motives and representations of Motivic galois groups?

Let $k$ be a field and $\operatorname{DM}_{gm}(k)_{\mathbb Q}$ the ∞-category of rational geometric motives over $k$. A mixed Weil cohomology theory induces a symmetric monoidal exact functor $$ R: \...

Are all representations of the geometric étale fundamental group subquotients of representations of the arithmetic étale fundamental group?

This is very far from true. In fact, a representation extending to the arithmetic fundamental group is such a severe restriction that these satisfy strong finiteness results; see [Litt21]. An easier (...

Tannaka duality for semisimple groups

In order for ${\mathcal C}$ to come from an algebraic group rather than a pro-algebraic one, you want ${\mathcal C}$ to be finitely generated. And for semisimplicity, you want the group to have finite ...

Tannaka duality for semisimple groups

Another criterion is that there should be only finitely many objects of bounded dimension. This condition might be easy to check in practice from abstract finiteness theorems. The proof is that, if ...

Relations between Motivic Galois groups and Motivic t-structure?

A question about the Tannaka-Krein reconstruction of finite groups

I don't think you've made an error. There's a version of Tannakian reconstruction for merely monoidal categories with fiber functors. Namely, a finite dimensional Hopf algebra is the same thing as a ...

How much of the category of motives can be recovered from automorphisms of the Betti functor

A precise way to say that "sufficiently nice functors" from schemes to complexes of vector spaces determine realization functors of Voevodsky's motives is the notion of mixed Weil cohomology. There ...

Interpretation of the algebra of natural endomorphisms of the fiber functor of $\operatorname{Rep}(G)$

For a reductive group the category of representations is semisimple so the algebra of endomorphisms of the fiber functor is just a product of matrix algebras, one for each irreducible representation. ...

Tensor functor between rigid tensor categories preserves $\text{Hom}$-objects

Your $F$ preserves dual objects because it preserves the duality situations: quadruples $(X,Y,\alpha : X\otimes Y \rightarrow I, \beta: I \rightarrow Y \otimes X)$. It remains to recall the formula ...

Why would the category of Motives be Tannakian?

My impression is that the language of Tannakian categories is a nice thing for itself; thus applying it to motives may (and will, see below) yield interesting applications. There are several ways of ...

What properties of a finite group fibre functor give its endomorphisms a hopf algebra structure?

The tensor product functor $\otimes : \text{Rep}(G) \times \text{Rep}(G) \to \text{Rep}(G)$ is "bilinear": it preserves colimits in both variables. It can therefore be regarded as being a "linear" ...

What is the name of the Hopf algebra whose comodules are the "positive" highest weight modules of $U_{q}(sl(2))$?

It usually goes by "quantized function algebra" of $SL_2$, or "regular function algebra" of $SL_q(2)$, of course with various minor variations. In Kassel's book it's denoted by $SL_q(2)$ (see Section ...
