For a finite braided tensor category we introduce its Picard crossed module consisting of the group of invertible module categories and the group of braided tensor autoequivalences. We describe the Picard crossed module in terms of braided autoequivalences of the Drinfeld center of the braided tensor category. As an illustration, we compute the Picard crossed module of a braided pointed fusion category. 
Pointed braided tensor categories
We classify finite pointed braided tensor categories admitting a fiber functor in terms of bilinear forms on symmetric Yetter-Drinfeld modules over abelian groups. We describe the groupoid formed by
The Relative Deligne Tensor Product over Pointed Braided Fusion Categories
We give a formula for the relative Deligne tensor product of two indecomposable finite semisimple module categories over a pointed braided fusion category over an algebraically closed field.
Braided Picard groups and graded extensions of braided tensor categories
We classify various types of graded extensions of a finite braided tensor category $\cal B$ in terms of its $2$-categorical Picard groups. In particular, we prove that braided extensions of $\cal B$
On the Drinfeld Center of the Category of Comodules over a Co-quasitriangular Hopf Algebra
Let $H$ be a co-quasitriangular Hopf algebra with bijective antipode. We prove that the Drinfeld center of the category of $H$-comodules is equivalent to the category of modules over some braided
Autoequivalences of Tensor Categories Attached to Quantum Groups at Roots of 1
We compute the group of braided tensor autoequivalences and the Brauer- Picard group of the representation category of the small quantumgroup uq(g), where q is a root of unity.
On dualizability of braided tensor categories
We study the question of dualizability in higher Morita categories of locally presentable tensor categories and braided tensor categories. Our main results are that the 3-category of rigid tensor
We establish rank-finiteness for the class of $G$-crossed braided fusion categories, generalizing the recent result for modular categories and including the important case of braided 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
On the Structure of Modular Categories
For a braided tensor category C and a subcategory K there is a notion of a centralizer CC K, which is a full tensor subcategory of C. A pre‐modular tensor category is known to be modular in the sense

On braided tensor categories
We investigate invertible elements and gradings in braided tensor categories. This leads us to the definition of theta-, product-, subgrading and orbitcategories in order to construct new families of
Categorical Morita Equivalence for Group-Theoretical Categories
A finite tensor category is called pointed if all its simple objects are invertible. We find necessary and sufficient conditions for two pointed semisimple categories to be dual to each other with
The Brauer group of a braided monoidal category
Representation theory of finite groups prompted the introduction of the Brauer group of a field and also of its Schur subgroups. The theory of quadratic forms and spaces introduced the Zr2Z-graded
Module categories over the Drinfeld double of a finite group
Let C be a (semisimple abelian) monoidal category. A module category over C is a (semisimple abelian) category M together with a functor C×M → M and an associativity constraint (= natural isomorphism
