Algebras and Hopf algebras in braided categories. (English) Zbl 0812.18004
Bergen, Jeffrey (ed.) et al., Advances in Hopf algebras. Conference, August 10-14, 1992, Chicago, IL, USA. New York, NY: Marcel Dekker. Lect. Notes Pure Appl. Math. 158, 55-105 (1994).
This is largely a review for algebraists of algebras and Hopf algebras in braided tensor categories including the theory of braided Tannaka-Krein- type reconstruction which starts with a tensor (= strong monoidal) functor \(F:{\mathcal C} \to {\mathcal V}\) where \({\mathcal V}\) is braided. String diagrammatic proofs are provided. Some recent developments such as a notion of braided Lie algebra, and braided differential calculus, are discussed.
