We show that the XY quantum chain in a magnetic field is invariant under a two parameter deformation of the SU(1/1) superalgebra. One is led to an extension of the braid group and the Hecke algebras which reduce to the known ones when the two parameter coincide. The physical significance of the two parameters is discussed. When both are equal to one, one gets a Pokrovski-Talapov phase transition. We also show that the representation theory of the quantum superalgebras indicates how to take the…

A two-parameter quantization of sl(2/1) and its finite-dimensional representations
The Lie superalgebra sl(2/1) is quantized in its non-standard simple rod system, resulting in a two-parameter quantum superalgebra Uq1,q2(sl(2/1)). When the two parameters coincide, Uq1,q2(sl(2/1))
A two-parameter quantization of osp(4/2)
A two-parameter deformation of the universal algebra of osp(4/2) is carried out, yielding a Z2-graded Hopf algebra with a bijective antipode. This Hopf algebra depends on the extra parameter in both
