Subcategories and Identities Consider the categories A and B described in Exercise 3G(a). If A = B, then is B a subcategory of A? 4B. Isomorphism-Closed Subcategories A (not necessarily full) subcategory A of a category B is called isomorphism-closed provided that every B-isomorphism with domain in A belongs23 to A. Show that every subcategory A of B can be embedded into a smallest isomorphism-closed subcategory A of B that contains A. The inclusion functor A → A is an equivalence iff all Bisomorphisms between A-objects belong to A.

I is an A-reflection for (B, ≤). Note that these A-reflections differ, in general, from the Mac Neille completions. For example, an A-reflection for a 3-element discrete poset is an 8-element complete lattice, whereas the Mac Neille completion is a 5-element one. ) subcategory JCPos. Let (B, ≤) be a poset and let ˜ be the collection of all lower-sets S of B [cf. (10)(a)]. Then (B, ˜ ⊆) is a complete B ˜ ⊆) defined as in (10) is an A-reflection. ) subcategory Mon. If (X, •) is a semigroup, then the extension (X, •) → (X ∪ {e}, ˆ•, e), obtained by adding a unit element e ∈ X of the operation ˆ•, is an A-reflection for (X, •).

3) Set is dually equivalent to the category of complete atomic boolean algebras and complete boolean homomorphisms. An equivalence can be obtained by associating with each set its power-set, considered as a complete atomic boolean algebra. (4) The category of compact Hausdorff abelian groups is dually equivalent to Ab. An equivalence can be obtained by associating with each compact Hausdorff abelian group G its group of characters hom(G, / ) (Pontrjagin Duality). ❘❩ (5) The category of locally compact abelian groups is dually equivalent to itself.
