X, Y ) = c(Y , X )−1 ∀Y ∈ Ob j C , one easily sees that Z2 (C ) is stable w.r.t. isomorphisms (thus replete), direct sums, retractions, tensor products and duals, the inherited braiding obviously being symmetric.
From Subfactors to Categories and Topology II. The quantum double of tensor categories and subfactors
For monoidal categories we require in addition that 1 is simple. A subcategory of a semisimple category is called semisimple if it is closed w.r.t. direct sums and retractions, thus in particular replete (stable under isomorphisms).
From Subfactors to Categories and Topology II. The quantum double of tensor categories and subfactors
Obviously the subcategory Z2 (C ) is symmetric, contains the monoidal unit and is stable w.r.t. direct sums, retractions (in particular isomorphisms, thus replete) and duals.
From Subfactors to Categories and Topology II. The quantum double of tensor categories and subfactors
