Abstract: The Brauer category is a tool that controls the representation theory of (special) orthogonal Lie groups and Lie algebras. A drawback is it doesn't see the spin representations. We introduce and study a spin version, the Spin Brauer category, which sees the entire representation theory of type B/D Lie algebras. This is joint work with Alistair Savage.
