    Todd started Schur functor. I added internal links and wrote linear category to be the target of one of them.

    Thanks, but I should say that I was in the middle of an edit when you did all that, and my submission erased your links, which I tried to reinsert. Please check: the link to "change of base" was supposed to point to an extant page, but I'm not sure which.

    Ah, your edit took longer than 30 minutes, so the lock timed out! And here I thought that you had cancelled it.

    Ah, I had no idea that locks time out! That's annoying, but at least now I know. I was busy trying to get the kids in bed and so on when it happened.

    I believe that they time out so that people can't lock a page forever if they just forget about it or their Internet connection crashes or something.

    Sometimes I'll save a draft every 15 minutes or so to prevent it.

    To get around the spam filter in the minimum time, I'll drop my intended comment for Schur functor here:

    is the divided powers functor Ab --> Ab a Schur functor? The preprint arXiv:0910.2817, section 2.1 has details.
    How about the Lie functor Ab --> Ab, which is just the tensor algebra with the obvious Z-Lie structure? Same paper for details.

    Thanks, David. For the time being I'm restricting to categories enriched in rational vector spaces, so for the time being let me apply the query to Vect_{fd} (finite-dimensional spaces) instead of Ab. Then yes, it looks like their paper gives formulas for the homogeneous components of these constructions as direct sums of certain classical S_\lambda's.

    I added a stubby part about using arbitrary representations of S_n.

    Thanks, Ben. I added a small and maybe slightly cryptic comment, to be followed up on later.

    I also created a stub on Specht modules, which should be key for defining analogues of Schur functors for all abelian monoidal categories.
