Let d be a positive integer. The notion of d-abelian categories was introduced by Jasso. Such a category does not have kernels and cokernels, but rather d-kernels and d-cokernels which are longer complexes with weaker universal properties. Canonical examples of d-abelian categories are d-cluster tilting subcategories of abelian categories.
We introduce the notion of thick subcategories of d-abelian categories and show a classification of the thick subcategories of a family of d-abelian categories associated to quivers of type A_n.
If time permits, we show how thick subcategories are in bijective correspondence with a particularly nice class of objects which we call thick generators.
