Abstract

Recall the ordinary notion of Frobenius algebra over a field k. Step 2 Lift the concept from linear algebra to a general monoidal category and justify this with examples and theorems. Step 3 Lift the concept up a dimension so that monoidal categories themselves can be examples. 1 Frobenius algebras An algebra A over a field k is called Frobenius when it is finite dimensional and equipped with a linear function e:A æÆ æ k such that: e ( ab) = 0 for all a ŒA implies b = 0.
