Fusion categories containing a fusion subcategory with maximal rank

  title={Fusion categories containing a fusion subcategory with maximal rank},
  author={Jingcheng Dong and Gang Chen and Zhihua Wang},
In this paper, we study fusion categories which contain a proper fusion subcategory with maximal rank. They can be viewed as generalizations of near-group fusion categories. We first prove that they admit spherical structure. We then classify those which are nondegenerate or symmetric. Finally, we classify such fusion categories of rank 4. 


We classify all fusion categories of rank 3 that admit a pivotal structure over an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero. Also in the Appendix (joint with D. Nikshych) we give some
Fusion categories of rank 2
We classify semisimple rigid monoidal categories with two isomorphism classes of simple objects over the field of complex numbers. In the appendix written by P.Etingof it is proved that the number of
Near-group categories
We consider the possibility of semisimple tensor categories whose fusion rule includes exactly one noninvertible simple object. Con- ditions are given for the existence or nonexistence of coherent
Nilpotent fusion categories
Abstract In this paper we extend categorically the notion of a finite nilpotent group to fusion categories. To this end, we first analyze the trivial component of the universal grading of a fusion
On braided fusion categories I
We introduce a new notion of the core of a braided fusion category. It allows to separate the part of a braided fusion category that does not come from finite groups. We also give a comprehensive and
Frobenius property for fusion categories of small integral dimension
Let k be an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero. In this paper, we prove that fusion categories of Frobenius–Perron dimensions 84 and 90 are of Frobenius type. Combining this with
Tensor Categories with Fusion Rules of Self-Duality for Finite Abelian Groups
Abstract Semisimple tensor categories with fusion rules of self-duality for finite abelian groups are classified. As an application, we prove that the Tannaka duals of the dihedral and the quaternion
On fusion categories
Using a variety of methods developed in the literature (in particular, the theory of weak Hopf algebras), we prove a number of general results about fusion categories in characteristic zero. We show
Module categories, weak Hopf algebras and modular invariants
AbstractWe develop a theory of module categories over monoidal categories (this is a straightforward categorization of modules over rings). As applications we show that any semisimple monoidal
On the classification of the Grothendieck rings of non-self-dual modular categories☆
Abstract We develop a symbolic computational approach to classifying low-rank modular fusion categories, up to finite ambiguity. By a generalized form of Ocneanu rigidity due to Etingof, Ostrik and
