The axioms for n–angulated categories

We discuss the axioms for an n-angulated category, recently introduced by Geiss, Keller and Op- permann in (2). In particular, we introduce a higher "octahedral axiom", and show that it is equivalent to the mapping cone axiom for an n-angulated category. For a triangulated category, the mapping cone axiom, our octahedral axiom and the classical octahedral axiom are all equivalent. Triangulated categories were introduced independently in algebraic geometry by Verdier (9, 10), based on ideas of… 

Figures from this paper

n-Abelian and n-exact categories

We introduce n-abelian and n-exact categories, these are analogs of abelian and exact categories from the point of view of higher homological algebra. We show that n-cluster-tilting subcategories of

$n$-Exact categories arising from $(n+2)$-angulated categories

Let (F , Σn,D) be an (n+2)-angulated Krull-Schmidt category and A ⊆ F an n-extension closed, additive and full subcategory with HomF (ΣnA , A ) = 0. Then A naturally carries the structure (A , EA )

n-angulated quotient categories induced by mutation pairs

Geiss, Keller and Oppermann (2013) introduced the notion of n-angulated category, which is a “higher dimensional” analogue of triangulated category, and showed that certain (n-2)-cluster tilting

The bivariant parasimplicial $\mathsf{S}_{\bullet}$-construction

Coherent strings of composable morphisms play an important role in various important constructions in abstract stable homotopy theory (for example algebraic K-theory or higher Toda brackets) and in

The Grothendieck Group of an n-exangulated Category

The Grothendieck group of an n -exangulated category is defined and it is proved that the subcategories in the classification theorem carry this structure.

A new characterization of n-exangulated categories with (n+2)-angulated structure

Herschend-Liu-Nakaoka introduced the notion of $n$-exangulated categories. It is not only a higher dimensional analogue of extriangulated categories defined by Nakaoka-Palu, but also gives a

Goodness in $n$-angulated categories

We generalise the notions of good, middling good, and Verdier good morphisms of distinguished triangles in triangulated categories, first introduced by Neeman, to the setting of n -angulated

From right (n+2)-angulated categories to n-exangulated categories

The notion of right semi-equivalence in a right (n+ 2)-angulated category is defined in this article. Let C be an n-exangulated category and X is a strongly covariantly finite subcategory of C . We



Triangulated categories: Definitions, properties and examples

Triangulated categories were introduced in the mid 1960’s by J.L. Verdier in his thesis, reprinted in [16]. Axioms similar to Verdier’s were independently also suggested in [2]. Having their origins

n-angulated categories

Abstract We define n-angulated categories by modifying the axioms of triangulated categories in a natural way. We show that Heller's parametrization of pre-triangulations extends to

Some new axioms for triangulated categories

The Additivity of Traces in Triangulated Categories

Abstract We explain a fundamental additivity theorem for Euler characteristics and generalized trace maps in triangulated categories. The proof depends on a refined axiomatization of symmetric
