Given a closed subgroup which is homogeneous, in the sense that we have , the corresponding Tannakian category C must satisfy . Based on this observation, we construct a certain integer , that we call the easiness level of G. The value corresponds to the case where G is easy, and we explore here, with some theory and examples, the case . As a main application, we show that and other liberation inclusions, known to be maximal in the easy setting, remain maximal at the easiness level as well.
I would like to thank J. Bichon, B. Collins, and S. Curran for many discussions on maximality questions over the last few years. Thanks also go to Poulette.
