We compute explicitly the monodromy representations of “cyclotomic” analogs of the Knizhnik–Zamolodchikov differential system. These are representations of the type B braid group $${B_n^1}$$ . We show how the representations of the braid group Bn obtained using quantum groups and universal R-matrices may be enhanced to representations of $${B_n^1}$$ using dynamical twists. Then, we show how these “algebraic” representations may be identified with the above “analytic” monodromy representations. 

Cyclotomic discriminantal arrangements and diagram automorphisms of Lie algebras

Recently a new class of quantum integrable models, the cyclotomic Gaudin models, were described in arXiv:1409.6937, arXiv:1410.7664. Motivated by these, we identify a class of affine hyperplane

Populations of solutions to cyclotomic Bethe equations

We study solutions of the Bethe Ansatz equations for the cyclotomic Gaudin model of (Vicedo B., Young C.A.S., arXiv:1409.6937). We give two interpretations of such solutions: as critical points of a

Cyclotomic associators and finite type invariants for tangles in the solid torus

The universal Vassiliev-Kontsevich invariant is a functor from the category of tangles to a certain graded category of chord diagrams, compatible with the Vassiliev filtration and whose associated

Comparison of quantizations of symmetric spaces: cyclotomic Knizhnik-Zamolodchikov equations and Letzter-Kolb coideals

We establish an equivalence between two approaches to quantization of irreducible symmetric spaces of compact type within the framework of quasi-coactions, one based on the Enriquez-Etingof

Universal K-matrices for quantum Kac-Moody algebras

We introduce the notion of a cylindrical bialgebra, which is a quasitriangular bialgebra H H endowed with a universal K-matrix, i.e., a universal solution of a generalized reflection

In this paper, we study the Stokes phenomenon of the generalized cyclotomic Knizhnik-Zamolodchikov equation, and prove that its two types of Stokes matrices satisfy the Yang-Baxter and reflection

For a finite group D, we study categorical factorisation homology on oriented surfaces equipped with principal D-bundles, which ‘integrates’ a (linear) balanced braided category A with D-action over

Integrating quantum groups over surfaces: quantum character varieties and topological field theory

Braided tensor categories give rise to (partially defined) extended 4-dimensional topological field theories, introduced in the modular case by Crane-Yetter-Kauffman. Starting from modules for the

Quantum character varieties and braided module categories

We compute quantum character varieties of arbitrary closed surfaces with boundaries and marked points. These are categorical invariants $$\int _S{\mathcal {A}}$$∫SA of a surface S, determined by the



Quantization of Alekseev-Meinrenken dynamical r-matrices

We quantize the Alekseev-Meinrenken solution r to the classical dynamical Yang-Baxter equation, associated to a Lie algebra g with an element t in S^2(g)^g. Namely, we construct a dynamical twist J

Quantization of Classical Dynamical r-Matrices with Nonabelian Base

We construct some classes of dynamical r-matrices over a nonabelian base, and quantize some of them by constructing dynamical (pseudo)twists in the sense of Xu. This way, we obtain quantizations of
