Finite dimensional algebras and highest weight categories. (English) Zbl 0657.18005
The concept of highest weight categories is defined. It is shown that the theory of highest weight categories is related to the theory of quasi- hereditary algebras. The results relating these theories appear to provide a strong link between the representation theory of finite dimensional algebras and that of semisimple groups and Lie algebras.
