Title: Basic representation theory of crossed modules
Issue Date: 2018 Abschlussarbeit (Master) xvi, 196
Abstract: A group corresponds to a topological space with one nontrivial homotopy group. A crossed module corresponds to a topological space with two nontrivial homotopy groups. In classical group theory, Cayley's Theorem constructs for every group G an injective group morphism to the symmetric group S_G. For a crossed module V, we have a similar statement. For every category C, we have the symmetric crossed module S_C. For every crossed module V, we construct an injective crossed module morphism to the symmetric crossed module S_VCat. Suppose given an R-linear category M. On the one hand, we obtain the invertible monoidal category Aut_R(M) by means of category theory. On the other hand, we have the symmetric crossed module S_M as in the Cayley context. In S_M, we have the crossed submodule Aut^CM_R(M) containing only the R-linear elements of S_M. We consider the corresponding invertible monoidal category (Aut^CM_R(M))Cat. We show that there exists a monoidal isofunctor Real_M : (Aut^CM_R(M))Cat -~-> Aut_R(M). This means that starting with M, we obtain essentially the same object via crossed module theory as via category theory. A representation of a group G on an R-module N is given by a group morphism G -> Aut_R(N). Analogously, a representation of a crossed module V on an R-linear category M is given by a crossed module morphism V -> Aut^CM_R(M). We begin to study the representation theory of crossed modules.
