In this paper we study representation theory of the category FI^m introduced by Gadish which is a product of copies of the category FI, and show that quite a few interesting representational and homological properties of FI can be generalized to FI^m in a natural way. In particular, we prove the representation stability property of finitely generated FI^m -modules over fields of characteristic 0.
We study the coinduction functor on the category of FI-modules and its variants. Using the coinduction functor, we give new and simpler proofs of (generalizations of) various results on homological properties of FI-modules. We also prove that any finitely generated projective VI-module over a field of characteristic 0 is injective.
Varagnolo and Vasserot conjectured an equivalence between the category O for CRDAHA’s and a subcategory of an affine parabolic category O of type A. We prove this conjecture. As applications, we prove a conjecture of Rouquier on the dimension of simple modules of CRDAHA’s and a conjecture of Chuang–Miyachi on the Koszul duality for the category O of CRDAHA’s.
