Some examples of Brauer-Picard groups of fusion categories

A fusion category is a type of tensor category which shares many properties with representation categories of finite groups. In addition to groups, examples of fusion categories come from quantum groups, operator algebras, and conformal field theory. In this talk we will describe the Brauer-Picard group of a fusion category, introduced by Etingof, Nikshych and Ostrik; and explain some calculations and examples.
