Abstract: Simple representations of KLR algebras can be used to realize the infinity crystal for the corresponding symmetrizable Kac-Moody algebra. It was recently shown that, in finite and affine types, certain sub-categories of “cuspidal” representations realize crystals for sub-Kac-Moody algebras. Here we put that observation on a firmer categorical footing by exhibiting a corresponding functor between the category of representations of the KLR algebra for the sub-Kac-Moody algebra and the category of cuspidal representations of the original KLR algebra.
