Braid group representations from twisted tensor products of algebras Institutional Repository Document uri icon


  • We unify and generalize several approaches to constructing braid group representations from finite groups, using iterated twisted tensor products. Our results hint at a relationship between the braidings on the $G$-gaugings of a pointed modular category $mathcal{C}(A,Q)$ and that of $mathcal{C}(A,Q)$ itself.
