Title: Braided Commutative Algebras over Quantized Enveloping Algebras
Algebras that are commutative in a braided tensor category appear in rational conformal field theory and in the study of extensions of vertex operator algebras. A construction of A. Davydov provides a way to associate to any algebra in a tensor category its full center, which is a commutative algebra in the center of the original tensor category.
In this talk, we discuss a generalization of the full center construction suitable to produce braided commutative algebras in the category of modules over quantized enveloping algebras. This construction uses an understanding of such module categories as relative monoidal centers.
There will be tea and biscuits at 1:45. All are welcome.
