Crossed Module

In mathematics, and especially in homotopy theory, a crossed module consists of groups G and H, where G acts on H (which we will write on the left, ), and a homomorphism of groups

that is equivariant with respect to the conjugation action of G on itself:

and also satisfies the so-called Peiffer identity:

Famous quotes containing the word crossed:

    Twilight and evening bell.
    And after that the dark!
    And may there be no sadness of farewell,
    When I embark;

    The flood may bear me far,
    I hope to see my Pilot face to face
    When I have crossed the bar.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)
