Mini-Workshop: Coideal Subalgebras of Quantum Groups
MetadataShow full item record
Period15 Feb - 21 Feb 2015
Coideal subalgebras of quantized enveloping algebras appear naturally if one considers quantum group analogs of Lie subalgebras. Examples appear in the theory of quantum integrable systems with boundary and in harmonic analysis on quantum group analogs of Riemannian symmetric spaces. Recently, much progress has been made to develop a deeper representation theoretic understanding of these examples. On the other hand, coideal subalgebras play a fundamental role in the theory of Nichols algebras. The workshop aimed to discuss these theories in view of the recent developments.
