In this article an introduction to the algebraic aspects of the Bethe ansatz is given. The applications to the seminal spin 1/2 XXX model are discussed in detail and the generalization to higher spin as well as XXZ and the lattice sine-Gordon model are indicated. The origin of quantum groups and their appearance in CFT models are explained. The text can be considered as a guide to the research papers in this field.

Introduction: The Two Bethe Ansätze
In this chapter we are going to review two techniques to perform computations in quantum theories in general, and spin chains and theories in a lattice in particular: the Coordinate Bethe Ansatz
Bethe Ansatz Techniques and the AdS/CFT Correspondence
In the present thesis, we will review various Bethe ansatz techniques such as the (nested) algebraic Bethe ansatz and the (nested) coordinate Bethe ansatz using well known models like the XXX model
Introduction to Quantum Integrability
In this article we review the basic concepts regarding quantum integrability. Special emphasis is given on the algebraic content of integrable models. The associated algebras are essentially
Bethe Ansatz for Heisenberg XXX Model
We investigate Bethe Ansatz equations for the one-dimensional spin-$\frac{1}{2}$ Heisenberg XXX chain with a special interest in a finite system. Solutions for the two-particle sector are obtained.
Solvable models of Bose–Einstein condensates: A new algebraic Bethe ansatz scheme
A new algebraic Bethe ansatz scheme is proposed to diagonalize classes of integrable models relevant to the description of Bose–Einstein condensation in dilute alkali gases. This is achieved by
Review of AdS/CFT Integrability, Chapter III.1: Bethe Ansätze and the R-Matrix Formalism
The one-dimensional Heisenberg XXX spin chain appears in a special limit of the AdS/CFT integrable system. We review various ways of proving its integrability, and discuss the associated methods of
The Quantum Algebraic Structure of the Twisted Xxz Chain
We consider the quantum inverse scattering method with a new R-matrix depending on two parameters q and t. We find that the underlying algebraic structure is the two-parameter deformed algebra
Quantum and Classical Integrable Systems
The key concept discussed in these lectures is the relation between the Hamiltonians of a quantum integrable system and the Casimir elements in the underlying hidden symmetry algebra. (In typical


Quantum Groups
Here is an introduction to the theory of quantum groups with emphasis on the spectacular connections with knot theory and Drinfeld's recent fundamental contributions. It presents the quantum groups
