The Picard crossed module of a braided tensor category

Alexei Davydov and Dmitri Nikshych

Vol. 7 (2013), No. 6, 1365–1403
Abstract

For a finite braided tensor category C we introduce its Picard crossed module P(C) consisting of the group of invertible C-module categories and the group of braided tensor autoequivalences of C. We describe P(C) in terms of braided autoequivalences of the Drinfeld center of C. As an illustration, we compute the Picard crossed module of a braided pointed fusion category.
