Quantum Groups and Asymptotic Symmetries

  title={Quantum Groups and Asymptotic Symmetries},
  author={Josua Unger},
This thesis is devoted to the study of Lie bialgebra and Hopf algebra structures related to certain versions of non-commutative geometry constructed on infinite-dimensional Lie algebras that arise in the context of asymptotic symmetries of spacetime. We prove a number of theorems about cohomology groups that aid the classification of the Lie bialgebras and explicitly construct and analyze selected Hopf algebras. Particularly interesting behavior was found by studying the contraction limit of…
