Operator Algebras in rigid C*-tensor categories

Presented by: 
Corey Jones
Monday 23rd January 2017 - 13:30 to 14:30
INI Seminar Room 1
In this talk, we will describe a theory of operator algebra objects in an arbitrary rigid C*-tensor category C.  Letting C be the category of finite dimensional Hilbert spaces, we recover the ordinary theory of operator algebras.  We will explain the philosophy and motivation for this framework, and how it provides a unified perspective on various aspects of the theories of rigid C*-tensor categories, quantum groups, and subfactors.  This is based on joint work with Dave Penneys.
