Abstract 



Modules over a quasialgebra (here, by quasialgebra we mean a left Hmodule algebra, where H is a quasiHopf algebra), as defined by Albuquerque and Majid, coincide with modules over a certain associative algebra, a quasiHopf smash product. As a consequence of this, we get that the category of modules over the octonions is isomorphic to the category of modules over the algebra of 8x8 real matrices. We provide a new approach to the endomorphism quasialgebra associated to a left Hmodule, which in the finite dimensional case yields the same results as the one of Albuquerque and Majid. We discuss possible definitions as endomorphism quasialgebras for Heisenberg doubles of a finite dimensional quasiHopf algebra. (C) 2004 American Institute of Physics.
