idempotent completion; pretriangulated category; torsion pair
Summary:
A pretriangulated category is an additive category with left and right triangulations such that these two triangulations are compatible. In this paper, we first show that the idempotent completion of a left triangulated category admits a unique structure of left triangulated category and dually this is true for a right triangulated category. We then prove that the idempotent completion of a pretriangulated category has a natural structure of pretriangulated category. As an application, we show that a torsion pair in a pretriangulated category extends uniquely to a torsion pair in the idempotent completion.
