We describe the quasitriangular structure (universal R-matrix) on the nonstandard quantum group Uq(H1, H2, X±) associated to the Alexander-Conway matrix solution of the Yang-Baxter equation. We show that this Hopf algebra is connected with the super-Hopf algebra Uqgl(1 | 1) by a general process of superization. 
Nonstandard quantum groups and superization
We obtain the universal R‐matrix of the nonstandard quantum group associated to the Alexander–Conway knot polynomial. We show further that this nonstandard quantum group is related to theExpand
Quasidiagonal Solutions of the Yang–Baxter Equation, Quantum Groups and Quantum Super Groups
This paper answers a few questions about algebraic aspects of bialgebras, associated with the family of solutions of the quantum Yang–Baxter equation in Acta Appl. Math. 41 (1995), pp. 57–98. WeExpand
Spin chains viewed as the fermionic parts of supersymmetric quantum mechanical models
Abstract This paper shows that (anisotropic) spin chains of XY type arise by matrix representation of the fermionic terms of hamiltonians of quantum systems whose supersymmetry involves in general noExpand
Algebras and Hopf Algebras in Braided Categories
This is an introduction for algebraists to the theory of algebras and Hopf algebras in braided categories. Such objects generalise super-algebras and super-Hopf algebras, aswell as colour-LieExpand


A new quantum group associated with a ‘nonstandard’ braid group representation
A new quantum group is derived from a ‘nonstandard’ braid group representation by employing the Faddeev-Reshetikhin-Takhtajan constructive method. The classical limit is not a Lie superalgebra,Expand
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 groupsExpand
Quasitriangular Hopf Algebras and Yang-Baxter Equations
This is an informal introduction to the theory of quasitriangular Hopf algebras and its connections with physics. Basic properties and applications of Hopf algebras and Yang-Baxter equations areExpand
Free fermions and the Alexander-Conway polynomial
AbstractWe show how the Conway Alexander polynomial arises from theq deformation of (Z2 graded)sl(n, n) algebras. In the simplestsl(1, 1) case we then establish connection between classical knotExpand
Transmutation theory and rank for quantum braided groups
Let f: H 1 → H 2 be any pair of quasitriangular Hopf algebras over k with a Hopf algebra map f between them. We construct in this situation a quasitriangular Hopf algebra B ( H 1 , f , H 2 ) in theExpand
Quantization of Lie Groups and Lie Algebras
Publisher Summary This chapter focuses on the quantization of lie groups and lie algebras. The Algebraic Bethe Ansatz—the quantum inverse scattering method—emerges as a natural development of theExpand
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 conditionsExpand
New families of commuting transfer matrices in q state vertex models
Abstract New exactly solvable two-dimensional q -state vertex models are given which generalize the ( q = 2) eight-vertex model, using the method of commuting transfer matrices. AssociatedExpand
