In science:

The first and second functors are naturally isomorphic, because of an adjunction between the functor of restriction of A-sets along πQ and the functor from (A ⋉ Q)-sets to A-sets given by sending an (A ⋉ Q)-set [[B , π ]] to the A-set [[B , πQ ◦ π ]].

The second and third functors are naturally isomorphic, because of the adjunction between the free functor from A-Set to Ab[A, V], and the corresponding forgetful functor.
