Frobenius–Schur indicators for near-group and Haagerup–Izumi fusion categories

Henry Tucker

Vol. 303 (2019), No. 1, 337–359

Ng and Schauenburg generalized higher Frobenius–Schur indicators to pivotal fusion categories and showed that these indicators may be computed utilizing the modular data of the Drinfel’d center of the given category. We consider two classes of fusion categories generated by a single noninvertible simple object: near groups, those fusion categories with one noninvertible object, and Haagerup–Izumi categories, those with one noninvertible object for every invertible object. Examples of both types arise as representations of finite or quantum groups or as Jones standard invariants of finite-depth Murray–von Neumann subfactors. We utilize the computations of the tube algebras due to Izumi and to Evans and Gannon to obtain formulae for the Frobenius–Schur indicators of objects in both of these families.
