On the relative projective space

Matias Data and Juliana Osorio

Let $(C,\otimes,1)$ be an abelian symmetric monoidal category satisfying certain exactness conditions. In this paper we define a presheaf $Proj{C}$ on the category of commutative algebras in $C$ and we prove that this functor is a $C$-scheme in the sense of B. Toen and M. Vaquie. We give another definition and prove that they give isomorphic $C$-schemes. This construction gives us a context of non-associative relative algebraic geometry. The most important example of the construction is the octonionic projective space.

Keywords: symmetric monoidal category, algebra object, line object, relative scheme
