Returns the default super categories of category.IsomorphicObjects()
Mathematical meaning: if \(A\) is the image of \(B\) by an isomorphism in the category \(C\), then \(A\) is both a subobject of \(B\) and a quotient of \(B\) in the category \(C\).
INPUT:
- cls – the class IsomorphicObjectsCategory
- category – a category \(Cat\)
OUTPUT: a (join) category
In practice, this returns category.Subobjects() and category.Quotients(), joined together with the result of the method RegressiveCovariantConstructionCategory.default_super_categories() (that is the join of category and cat.IsomorphicObjects() for each cat in the super categories of category).
EXAMPLES:
Consider category=Groups(), which has cat=Monoids() as super category. Then, the image of a group \(G'\) by a group isomorphism is simultaneously a subgroup of \(G\), a subquotient of \(G\), a group by itself, and the image of \(G\) by a monoid isomorphism:
sage: Groups().IsomorphicObjects().super_categories()
[Category of groups,
Category of subquotients of monoids,
Category of quotients of semigroups,
Category of isomorphic objects of sets]
Mind the last item above: there is indeed currently nothing implemented about isomorphic objects of monoids.
This resulted from the following call:
sage: sage.categories.isomorphic_objects.IsomorphicObjectsCategory.default_super_categories(Groups())
Join of Category of groups and
Category of subquotients of monoids and
Category of quotients of semigroups and
Category of isomorphic objects of sets
