... inherits various structures from C, provided that A is a Frobenius algebra with certain additional properties. As a byproduct we obtain results about the FrobeniusSchur indicator in sovereign tensor categories. A braiding on C is not needed, nor is semisimplicity. We apply our results to the description of boundary conditions in twodimensional conformal field theory and present illustrative examples. We show that when the module category is tensor, then it gives rise to a NIMrep of the fusion rules, and discuss a possible relation with the representation theory of vertex operator algebras.
On qanalog of McKay correspondence and ADE classification of sl (2) conformal field theories
 Adv. Math
"... Abstract. The goal of this paper is to classify “finite subgroups in Uq(sl2)” where q = e πi/l is a root of unity. We propose a definition of such a subgroup in terms of the category of representations of Uq(sl2); we show that this definition is a natural generalization of the notion of a subgroup i ..."

Abstract. The goal of this paper is to classify “finite subgroups in Uq(sl2)” where q = e πi/l is a root of unity. We propose a definition of such a subgroup in terms of the category of representations of Uq(sl2); we show that this definition is a natural generalization of the notion of a subgroup in a reductive group, and that it is also related with extensions of the chiral (vertex operator) algebra corresponding to ̂ sl2 at level k = l − 2. We show that “finite subgroups in Uq(sl2) ” are classified by Dynkin diagrams of types An, D2n, E6, E8 with Coxeter number equal to l, give a description of this correspondence similar to the classical McKay correspondence, and discuss relation with modular invariants in ( ̂ sl2)k conformal field theory.

After giving a short description, in terms of action of categories, of some of the structures associated with sl(2) and sl(3) boundary conformal field theories on a torus, we provide tables of dimensions describing the semisimple and cosemisimple blocks of the corresponding weak bialgebras (quantum groupoids), tables of quantum dimensions and orders, and tables describing induction restriction. For reasons of size, the sl(3) tables of induction are only given for theories with selffusion (existence of a monoidal structure).
Skein Theory for the D2n Planar Algebras

"... Abstract We give a combinatorial description of the “D2n planar algebra”, by giving generators and relations. This includes a direct proof that the relations are consistent, as well as a complete description of the associated tensor category and its principal graph. While we use the usual langauge o ..."

Abstract We give a combinatorial description of the “D2n planar algebra”, by giving generators and relations. This includes a direct proof that the relations are consistent, as well as a complete description of the associated tensor category and its principal graph. While we use the usual langauge of subfactor planar algebras, the entire argument is ‘skeintheoretic’, and there is no functional analysis. AMS Classification 46L37; 57M15 46M99

We study properties of the category of modules of an algebra object A in a tensor category C. We show that the module category inherits various structures from C, provided that A is a Frobenius algebra with certain additional properties. As a byproduct we obtain results about the FrobeniusSchur indicator in sovereign tensor categories. A braiding on C is not needed, nor is semisimplicity. We apply our results to the description of boundary conditions in twodimensional conformal field theory and present illustrative examples. We show that module categories give rise to NIMreps of the fusion rules, and discuss a possible relation with the representation theory of vertex operator algebras. 1 1 CFT boundary conditions Boundary conditions in conformal field theory have various physical applications, ranging from the study of defects in condensed matter physics to the theory of open strings. Such boundary conditions are partially characterized by the maximal vertex operator subalgebra A of the bulk chiral algebra Abulk that they respect [41, 67]. That A is respected by a boundary condition means that the correlation functions in the presence of the boundary condition satisfy the Ward
