Let \(J\) be a Dynkin diagram and \(\theta\) an automorphism of \(J\). Let \(\mathfrak g\) be the simple Lie algebra over \(\mathbb{C}\) with Dynkin diagram \(J\) and \(\theta\) be the automorphism of \(\mathfrak g\) corresponding to \(\theta\). Let \(I = J/\theta\) denote the Dynkin diagram of \({\mathfrak g}^ \theta\) and let \(g\) be the number of Coxeter duals of \({\mathfrak g}^ \theta\).
In this paper, for each Chevalley group of the type associated with \(I\) over a field of characteristic \(p\), a rigid tensor category \({\mathcal P}_{\text{mod}}\) is defined. Moreover, it is shown that the Grothendieck ring of \({\mathcal P}_{\text{mod}}\) is isomorphic to the Grothendieck ring of the tensor category of all \(\mathcal O\)-integrable representations of the twisted loop algebra associated with \(J\) and \(\theta\) at level \(p-g\) and the truth of the conjecture linking quantum group representations and the representations of the twisted loop algebras is explained.
