# Constructing modular categories from orbifold data

@article{Mulevicius2020ConstructingMC, title={Constructing modular categories from orbifold data}, author={Vincentas Mulevicius and Ingo Runkel}, journal={arXiv: Quantum Algebra}, year={2020} }

In Carqueville et al., arXiv:1809.01483, the notion of an orbifold datum $\mathbb{A}$ in a modular fusion category $\mathcal{C}$ was introduced as part of a generalised orbifold construction for Reshetikhin-Turaev TQFTs. In this paper, given a simple orbifold datum $\mathbb{A}$ in $\mathcal{C}$, we introduce a ribbon category $\mathcal{C}_{\mathbb{A}}$ and show that it is again a modular fusion category. The definition of $\mathcal{C}_{\mathbb{A}}$ is motivated by properties of Wilson lines in…

Fibonacci-type orbifold data in Ising modular categories

- Mathematics
- 2020

An orbifold datum is a collection $\mathbb{A}$ of algebraic data in a modular fusion category $\mathcal{C}$. It allows one to define a new modular fusion category $\mathcal{C}_{\mathbb{A}}$ in a…

Orbifolds of Reshetikhin-Turaev TQFTs

- Mathematics
- 2018

We construct three classes of generalised orbifolds of Reshetikhin-Turaev theory for a modular tensor category $\mathcal{C}$, using the language of defect TQFT from [arXiv:1705.06085]: (i) spherical…

Orbifold graph TQFTs

A generalised orbifold of a defect TQFT Z is another TQFT ZA obtained by performing a state sum construction internal to Z. As an input it needs a so-called orbifold datum A which is used to label…

Reshetikhin-Turaev TQFTs close under generalised orbifolds

We specialise the construction of orbifold graph TQFTs introduced in [CMRSS] to Reshetikhin–Turaev defect TQFTs. We explain that the modular fusion category CA constructed in [MR] from an orbifold…

Higher Gauging and Non-invertible Condensation Defects

- Mathematics

We discuss invertible and non-invertible topological condensation defects arising from gauging a discrete higher-form symmetry on a higher codimensional manifold in spacetime, which we deﬁne as…

Studying two-dimensional field theories in the presence of defect lines naturally gives rise to monoidal categories: their objects are the different (topological) defect conditions, their morphisms…

We study properties of the category of modules of an algebra object A in a tensor category C. We show that the module category inherits various structures from C, provided that A is a Frobenius…
