Relative homological categories

Tamar Janelidze

We introduce relative homological and weakly homological categories $(\mathbf{C},\mathbf{E})$, where ``relative'' refers to a distinguished class $\mathbf{E}$ of normal epimorphisms in $\mathbf{C}$. It is a generalization of homological categories, but also protomodular categories can be regarded as examples. We indicate that the relative versions of various homological lemmas can be proved in a relative homological category.
