Abelian categories are categories that possess most of properties of categories of modules over a ring, e.g. abelian group structure on morphisms, existence of kernels and cokernels of morphisms, existence of direct products and directs sums, etc.

### Can tensor abelian categories always be embedded into the category of modules?

Let $(\mathcal A, +,\otimes,I)$ a small symmetric monoidal abelian category. I know that $\mathcal A$ can be embedded into the category of $R$-module for a certain ring $R$. But can we make such ...

### Interaction of a functor with internal hom

An additive functor between abelian categories $F: \mathscr{C} \to \mathscr{D}$ induces a functor on categories of chain complexes $F: \mathscr{C}^\bullet \to \mathscr{D}^\bullet$. The internal hom ...

### When is an object in a linear or abelian category simple? Or: How should I define fusion categories?

I'm confused about the notion of simple objects. Now ncatlab says that an object is simple in an abelian category if it only has itself and 0 as subobjects. On another page, it says that the simple ...

Let $\mathsf{C}$ be a category. We call $\mathsf{C}$ binormal if it has a null object, has all equilizers and coequilizers, all monomorphisms are kernels and all epimorphisms are cokernels (whereby a ...

Is there an example of an abelian subcategory $\mathcal{B}$ of an abelian category $\mathcal{A}$ such that : The inclusion functor $\mathcal{B}\to \mathcal{A}$ is exact. $\mathcal{B}$ is not closed ...
