In science:

The generalized Yang-Baxter operators we consider are obtained from so-called gYBE ob jects following a procedure of Kitaev and Wang.
From ribbon categories to generalized Yang-Baxter operators and link invariants (after Kitaev and Wang)
We call X a (d, 3, 1)-gYBE ob ject with respect to a set L = {Xi}i∈I ⊂ Irr(C) if the set L consists of d simple ob jects and X ⊗ Xj ∼= ⊕i∈I Xi for all j ∈ I .
From ribbon categories to generalized Yang-Baxter operators and link invariants (after Kitaev and Wang)
We will consider only a simple ob ject X for gYBE ob ject as otherwise twist θX would be a matrix rather than a scalar.
From ribbon categories to generalized Yang-Baxter operators and link invariants (after Kitaev and Wang)
Let X ∈ Irr(C) be a (d, 3, 1)gYBE object with respect to a set L and RX,L be the corresponding gYB-operator.
From ribbon categories to generalized Yang-Baxter operators and link invariants (after Kitaev and Wang)
It is observed that the simple ob jects Xi , 1 ≤ i ≤ r, are (2, 3, 1)-gYBE ob jects with respect to the set L = {Xε , Xε′ } in [KW].
