The aim of this paper is to offer an overview of the most important applications of Jordan structures inside mathematics and also to physics, up-dated references being included. For a more detailed treatment of this topic see - especially - the recent book Iordanescu [364w], where sugestions for further developments are given through many open problems, comments and remarks pointed out throughout the text. Nowadays, mathematics becomes more and more nonassociative and my prediction is that in…

On Jordan Algebras and Some Unification Results

This paper is based on a talk given at the 14-th International Workshop on Differential Geometry and Its Applications, hosted by the Petroleum Gas University from Ploiesti, between July 9-th and July


The concept of symmetry plays an important role in solving equations and systems of equations. We will present solutions for the (constant and spectral-parameter) Yang-Baxter equations and

Non-Associative Algebras, Yang-Baxter equations, and Quantum Computers

Non-associative algebras is a research direction gaining much at- tention these days. New developments show that associative algebras and some not-associative structures can be unified at the level

Dedicated to the 150th anniversary of the Romanian Academy ON JORDAN ALGEBRAS AND UNIFICATION THEORIES

The current paper emerged after the 12th International Workshop on Di erential Geometry and Its Applications, hosted by the Petroleum Gas University from Ploiesti, between September 23rd and

The Yang-Baxter Equation, (Quantum) Computers and Unifying Theories

This paper gives the axioms of a structure which unifies associative algebras, Lie alge bras and Jordan algebraes and contains several geometric considerations.

On a ternary generalization of Jordan algebras

Abstract Based on the relation between the notions of Lie triple systems and Jordan algebras, we introduce the n-ary Jordan algebras, an n-ary generalization of Jordan algebras obtained via the

Yang-Baxter Equations, Computational Methods and Applications

A account of some of the latest developments on the Yang-Baxter equation, its set-theoretical version, and its applications, and new set- theoretical solutions for theYang-B Baxter equation are constructed.

Yang-Baxter operators from algebra structures and Lie superalgebras

We present solutions for the (constant and spectral-parameter) Yang-Baxter equations and Yang-Baxter systems arising from algebra structures and discuss about their symmetries. In the last section,

Literature Survey on Non-Associative Rings and Developments

In this paper we present a comprehensive survey and developments of existing literature of non-associative rings and enumerate some of their various applications in different directions to date.


We present new results about Jordan algebras and Jordan coalgebras, and we discuss about their connections with the Yang-Baxter equations.



Soliton equations and differential geometry

In this paper we study certain symplectic, Lie theoretic, and differential geometric properties of soliton equations. The equation for harmonic maps from the Lorentz space R1,1 to a symmetric space,

From Solitons to Knots and Links

Development in the theory of solvable (integrable) models is reviewed. It covers from basic knowledge on completely integrable systems to recent work by the authors. First, soliton theory is briefly


It is shown that the sequence of Jordan algebras , whose elements are the 3 × 3 Hermitian matrices over the division algebras ℝ, , ℚ and , can be associated with the bosonic string as well as the

Traces On Jordan Algebras

In the theory of Jordan algebras one encounters several definitions of the trace, and it is sometimes unclear whether the different notions are equivalent or not. If we restrict attention to the

On the Structure and Tensor Products of JC-Algebras

Norm closed (or weakly closed) Jordan algebras of self-adjoint operators on a Hilbert space were initially studied by Topping, Effros, and Stormer [15], [4], [12], [13]. These works are very


It has been established that the covering group of the Lorentz group in D=3, 4, 6, 10 can be expressed in a unified way, based on the four composition division algebras R, C, Q and O. We discuss, in

Jordan algebras and Capelli identities

The purpose of this paper is to establish a connection between semisimple Jordan algebras and certain invariant differential operators on symmetric spaces; and to prove an identity for such operators

Statistical Applications of Jordan Algebras

This volume brings together the author's work in mathematical statistics as viewed through the lens of Jordan algebras. The three main areas covered in this work are: applications to random quadratic

Derivations on Banach-Jordan pairs

A basic continuity problem consists in determining algebraic conditions on a Banach algebra A which ensure that derivations on A are continuous. In 1968, Johnson established the continuity of
