Abstract:
We study connections between additive and abelian 2-representations of fiat 2-categories, describe combinatorics of 2-categories in terms of multisemigroups and determine the annihilator of a cell 2-representation. We also describe, in detail, examples of fiat 2-categories associated to $\mathfrak{sl}_2$-categorification in the sense of Chuang and Rouquier, and 2-categorical analogues of Schur algebras.

Abstract:
Ideals are used to define homological functors for additive categories. In abelian categories the ideals corresponding to the usual universal objects are principal, and the construction reduces, in a choice dependent way, to homology groups. Applications are considered: derived categories and functors.

Abstract:
Sieg and Wegner showed that the stable exact sequences define a maximal exact structure (in the sense of Quillen) in any pre-abelian category. We generalize this result for weakly idempotent complete additive categories.

Abstract:
In this note, we define a recollement of additive categories, and prove that such a recollement can induce a recollement of their quotient categories. As an application, we get a recollement of quotient triangulated categories induced by mutation pairs.

Abstract:
Recently Dupont proved that the categories of discrete and codiscrete (or connected) objects in an abelian 2-category are equivalent abelian categories. He posses also a question whether any abelian category comes in this way. We will give a rather trivial solution of this problem in the case when a given abelian category has enough projective or injective objects.

Abstract:
Expansions of abelian categories are introduced. These are certain functors between abelian categories and provide a tool for induction/reduction arguments. Expansions arise naturally in the study of coherent sheaves on weighted projective lines; this is illustrated by various applications.

Abstract:
We show that if A is an abelian category satisfying certain mild conditions, then one can introduce the concept of a moduli space of (semi)stable objects which has the structure of a projective algebraic variety. This idea is applied to several important abelian categories in representation theory, like highest weight categories.
