Abstract: Cellular algebras have been defined in a computational way by the existence of a special kind of basis. We compare them with quasi-hereditary algebras, which are known to carry much homological and categorical structure. Among the properties to be discussed here are characterizations of quasi-hereditary algebras inside the class of cellular algebras in terms of vanishing of cohomology and in terms of positivity of the Cartan determinant.
