Makoto Yamashita (Ochanomizu): Drinfeld center and representation theory for monoidal categories
Makoto Yamashita, Ochanomizu University, will give a talk with title: Drinfeld center and representation theory for monoidal categories
Abstract: Motivated by the recently found relation between central completely positive multipliers and the spherical unitary representations of the Drinfeld double for discrete quantum groups, we construct and analyze the representations of fusion algebra of rigid C*-tensor category from the unitary half-braidings. Through the correspondence of Drinfeld center and the generalized Longo-Rehren construction in subfactor theory, these representations are also related to Popa’s theory of correspondences and subfactors. This talk is based on joint work with Sergey Neshveyev.
