Generalisations of Hecke algebras from Loop Braid Groups

  title={Generalisations of Hecke algebras from Loop Braid Groups},
  author={Celeste Damiani and Paul Purdon Martin and Eric C. Rowell},
  journal={arXiv: Geometric Topology},
We introduce a generalisation $LH_n$ of the ordinary Hecke algebras informed by the loop braid group $LB_n$ and the extension of the Burau representation thereto. The ordinary Hecke algebra has many remarkable arithmetic and representation theoretic properties, and many applications. We show that $LH_n$ has analogues of several of these properties. In particular we introduce a class of local representations of the braid group derived from a meld of the Burau representation and the Rittenberg…

Classification of spin-chain braid representations
A braid representation is a monoidal functor from the braid category B. Given a monoidal category C, a rank-N charge-conserving representation (or spin-chain representation) is a monoidal functor
The Burau representations of loop braid groups
We give a simple topological construction of the Burau representations of the loop braid groups. There are four versions: defined either on the non-extended or extended loop braid groups, and in each


Braids, link polynomials and a new algebra
A class function on the braid group is derived from the Kauffman link invariant. This function is used to construct representations of the braid groups depending on 2 parameters. The decomposition of
Quantum Groups
This thesis consists of four papers. In the first paper we present methods and explicit formulas for describing simple weight modules over twisted generalized Weyl algebras. Under certain conditions
Localization of Unitary Braid Group Representations
Governed by locality, we explore a connection between unitary braid group representations associated to a unitary R-matrix and to a simple object in a unitary braided fusion category. Unitary
On the Burau representation for $n=4$
The problem of faithfulness of the (reduced) Burau representation for $n =4$ is known to be equivalent to the problem of whether certain two matrices A and B generate a free group of rank two. In
Braid groups and Iwahori-Hecke algebras
This article was submitted to a volume under preparation, with Benson Farb as the editor, on the topic of open problems in surface mapping class groups. The braid group B_n is the mapping class
We prove that an N-state vertex model representation of the An Hecke algebra quotient NHn(q) is faithful for all q. We use the result to examine the indecomposable content of these representations,
Alexander invariants of ribbon tangles and planar algebras
Ribbon tangles are proper embeddings of tori and cylinders in the $4$-ball~$B^4$, "bounding" $3$-manifolds with only ribbon disks as singularities. We construct an Alexander invariant $\mathsf{A}$ of
Some Remarks on Algebras Over an Algebraically Closed Field
The theory of rings with radicals is an interesting and far reaching problem of modern algebra.' In this paper we have examined some aspects of algebras which may have radicals and whose coefficient
The Burau representation of the braid group $B_n$ is unfaithful for large $n$
Two fundamental theorems of classical knot theory, by J. Alexander, are that every knot is a closed braid, and second, that a certain procedure (see [1,2] for both results) assigns to each knot K a
