Aquantum categoryis defined as the (non-Abelian) category of quantum groupoids,Failed to parse (unknown function "\grp"): {\displaystyle [Q_{\grp}]_i},and quantum groupoid homomorphisms,Failed to parse (unknown function "\grp"): {\displaystyle [q_{\grp}]_{ij}}, where and are indices in an index class, , all subject to the usual ETAC axioms and their interpretations.

The category of quantum groupoids, **Failed to parse (unknown function "\grp"): {\displaystyle [Q_{\grp}]_i}**
, is trivially a subcategory of the groupoid category, that can also be regarded as a functor category, or -category, if **Failed to parse (unknown function "\grp"): {\displaystyle \grp}**
is small, that is, if is a set rather than a class.

A physical mathematics definition of quantum category has also been reported as a rigid monoidal category, or its equivalents.
