In this work, using the functoriality of the Drinfeld center of fusion categories, we generalize the functoriality of the full center of simple separable algebras in a fixed fusion category to all fusion categories. This generalization produces a new center functor, which involves both Drinfeld center and full center and is called pointed Drinfeld center functor. We prove that this pointed Drinfeld center functor is a symmetric monoidal equivalence. It turns out that this functor provides a…

A mathematical theory of gapless edges of 2d topological orders. Part I

This is the first part of a two-part work on a unified mathematical theory of gapped and gapless edges of 2d topological orders. We analyze all the possible observables on the 1+1D world sheet of a

Classification of topological phases with finite internal symmetries in all dimensions

Abstract We develop a mathematical theory of symmetry protected trivial (SPT) orders and anomaly-free symmetry enriched topological (SET) orders in all dimensions via two different approaches with

. In this work, inspired by some physical intuitions, we define a series of symmetry enriched categories to describe symmetry enriched topological (SET) orders, and define a new tensor product, called

Categories of quantum liquids I

Abstract We develop a mathematical theory of separable higher categories based on Gaiotto and Johnson-Freyd’s work on condensation completion. Based on this theory, we prove some fundamental results

Enriched monoidal categories I: centers

This work is the first one in a series, in which we develop a mathematical theory of enriched (braided) monoidal categories and their representations. In this work, we introduce the notion of the

Boundary-bulk relation for topological orders as the functor mapping higher categories to their centers

In this paper, we study the relation between topological orders and their gapped boundaries. We propose that the bulk for a given gapped boundary theory is unique. It is actually a consequence of a

Fusion categories and homotopy theory

We apply the yoga of classical homotopy theory to classification problems of G-extensions of fusion and braided fusion categories, where G is a finite group. Namely, we reduce such problems to

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

Finite tensor categories

We start the general structure theory of not necessarily semisimple finite tensor categories, generalizing the results in the semisimple case (i.e. for fusion categories), obtained recently in our

A mathematical theory of gapless edges of 2d topological orders. Part I

This is the first part of a two-part work on a unified mathematical theory of gapped and gapless edges of 2d topological orders. We analyze all the possible observables on the 1+1D world sheet of a

Monoidal categories in, and linking, geometry and algebra

This is a report on aspects of the theory and use of monoidal categories. The first section introduces the main concepts through the example of the category of vector spaces. String notation is
