On the definition of Kac-Moody 2-category. (English) Zbl 1395.17014
The main result of the paper asserts that Rouquier’s Kac-Moody \(2\)-category associated to a symmetrizable generalized Cartan matrix is isomorphic to the corresponding Khovanov and Lauda \(2\)-category (in a more general definition of Cautis and Lauda). The proof is done by an elementary but technically very non-trivial relation chase.
