Grassmann-Hopf Algebroid Categories and Grassmann CategoriesEdit

The categories whose objects are either Grassmann-Hopf al/gebras , or in general algebroids, and whose morphisms are homomorphisms are called Grassmann-Hopf Algebroid Categories .

Although carrying a similar name, a quite different type of Grassmann categories have been introduced previously:

Grassmann Categories (as in [1]) are defined on letters over nontrivial abelian categories Failed to parse (unknown function "\A"): {\displaystyle \mathbf{\A}} as full subcategories of the categories Failed to parse (unknown function "\A"): {\displaystyle F_{\mathbf{\A}}(x_1,...,x_k)} consisting of diagrams satisfying the relations: and with additional conditions on coadjoints, coproducts and morphisms.

They were shown to be equivalent to the category of right modules over the endomorphism ring of the coadjoint which is isomorphic to the Grassmann--or exterior--ring over on letters .
