Categories of comodules and chain complexes of modules

By A. Ardizzoni, L. El Kaoutit and C. Menini


Let L(A) denote the coendomorphism left R-bialgebroid associated to a left finitely\ud generated and projective extension of rings R → A with identities. We show that the\ud category of left comodules over an epimorphic image of L(A) is equivalent to the category\ud of chain complexes of left R-modules. This equivalence is monoidal whenever R is\ud commutative and A is an R-algebra. This is a generalization, using entirely new tools,\ud of results by Pareigis and Tambara for chain complexes of vector spaces over fields. Our\ud approach relies heavily on the noncommutative theory of Tannaka reconstruction, and\ud the generalized faithfully flat descent for small additive categories, or rings with enough\ud orthogonal idempotents

Topics: Monoidal categories, chain complexes, ring extension, bialgebroids, Tannakian categories.
