Abstract A useful general concept of bialgebroid seems to be resolving itself in recent publications; we give a treatment in terms of modules and enriched categories. Generalizing this concept, we define the term "quantum category"in a braided monoidal category with equalizers distributed over by tensoring with an object. The definition of antipode for a bialgebroid is less resolved in the literature. Our suggestion is that the kind of dualization occurring in Barr's starautonomous categories is more suitable than autonomy ( = compactness = rigidity). This leads to our definition of quantum groupoid intended as a "Hopf algebra with several objects". 1.

Abstract. Every monoidal functor G: C → M has a canonical factorization through the category RMR of bimodules in M over some monoid R in M in which the factor U: C → RMR is strongly unital. Using this result and the characterization of the forgetful functors MA → RMR of bialgebroids A over R given by Schauenburg [15] together with their bimonad description given by the author in [18] here we characterize the ”long ” forgetful functors MA → RMR → M of both bialgebroids and weak bialgebras. 1.

Let A be an algebra over the commutative ring k. It is well known that the category MA of right Amodules is cocomplete, Abelian and the right regular object AA is a small projective generator. The latter three properties means precisely that the functor Hom A(A, ) : MA → Mk preserves coproducts, preserves cokernels and it is faithful, respectively. In fact this functor is monadic and has a right adjoint. It is also well known [8] that the above properties characterize such categories: For a klinear category C to be equivalent to MA for some kalgebra A it is sufficient that C is cocomplete, Abelian and possesses a small projective generator. Of course the algebra A is determined by C only up to Morita equivalence. The analogue question for monoidal module categories has been studied by B. Pareigis in [10]. With the advent of quantum groupoids it is worth reconsidering the question. Therefore we are interested in monoidal structures on MA admitting a strong monoidal forgetful functor to the category RMR of bimodules over some other kalgebra R. In the special case of R = k one obtains that A is a bialgebra [11]. The general case leads to bialgebroids [12]. The importance of module categories

Category theory provides a uniform method of encoding mathematical structures and universal constructions with them. In this article we apply the method of additional structures on the objects of a category to deform a comonoid structure, used implicitly in all categories. To deform this comultiplication we consider internal categories in a monoidal category with some special properties. Then we consider structures over comonoids and show that deformed internal categories form a 2category. This provides the possibility to study, in a uniform way, different types of generalized multiplicative and comultiplicative structures of 2dimensional Topological Quantum Field Theory.

Abstract. After recalling the definition of a bicoalgebroid, we define comodules and modules over a bicoalgebroid. We construct the monoidal category of comodules, and define Yetter–Drinfel’d modules over a bicoalgebroid. It is proved that the Yetter–Drinfel’d category is monoidal and pre–braided just as in the case of bialgebroids, and is embedded into the one–sided center of the comodule category. We proceed to define Braided Cocommutative Coalgebras (BCC) over a bicoalgebroid, and dualize the scalar extension construction of [2] and [1], originally applied to bialgebras and bialgebroids, to bicoalgebroids. A few classical examples of this construction are given. Identifying the comodule

Abstract. Kornel Szlachányi [28] recently used the term skewmonoidal category for a particular laxi ed version of monoidal category. He showed that bialgebroids H with base ring R could be characterized in terms of skewmonoidal structures on the category of onesided Rmodules for which the lax unit was R itself. We de ne skew monoidales (or skew pseudomonoids) in any monoidal bicategory M. These are skewmonoidal categories when M is Cat. Our main results are presented at the level of monoidal bicategories. However, a consequence is that quantum categories [10] with base comonoid C in a suitably complete braided monoidal category V are precisely skew monoidales in Comod(V) with unit coming from the counit of C. Quantum groupoids (in the sense of [6] rather than [10]) are those skew monoidales with invertible associativity constraint. In fact, we provide some very general results connecting opmonoidal monads and skew monoidales. We use a lax version of the concept of warping de ned in [3] to modify monoidal structures. 1.

Abstract. Bruguières, Lack and Virelizier have recently obtained a vast generalization of Sweedler’s Fundamental Theorem of Hopf modules, in which the role of the Hopf algebra is played by a bimonad. We present an extension of this result which involves, in addition to the bimonad, a comodulemonad and a algebracomonoid over it. As an application we obtain a generalization of another classical theorem from the Hopf algebra literature, due to Schneider, which itself is an extension of Sweedler’s result (to the setting of Hopf Galois extensions).
