The \(H\)-covariant strong Picard groupoid. (English) Zbl 1108.53056

The authors introduce the notion of \(H\)-covariant strong Morita equivalence for *-algebras. Basic notions of an \(H\)-covariant *-representation are etablished and various groupoid morphisms between Picard groupoids are discussed. Finally, the authors realize several Morita invariants from actions of the \(H\)-covariant strong Picard groupoid.
