Yetter-Drinfel'd algebras and coideals of Weak Hopf C*-Algebras

Leonid Vainerman and Jean-Michel Vallin

We characterize braided commutative Yetter-Drinfel'd C*-algebras over weak Hopf C*-algebras in categorical terms. Using this, we then study quotient type coideal subalgebras of a given weak Hopf C*-algebra G and coideal subalgebras invariant with respect to the adjoint action of G. Finally, as an example, we explicitly describe quotient type coideal subalgebras of the weak Hopf C*-algebras associated with Tambara-Yamagami categories.
