  Hopf Algebras and Generalizations: AMS Special Session on Hopf Algebras at the Crossroads of Algebra, Category Theory, and Topology, October , , Evanston, Illinois Louis H. Kauffman Hopf algebras have proved to be very interesting structures with deep connections to various areas of mathematics, particularly through quantum groups.   The notion of a combinatorial Hopf algebra is a heuristic one, referring to rich algebraic structures arising naturally on the linear spans of various families of combinatorial objects. These spaces are generally endowed with several products and coproducts, and are in particular graded connected bialgebras, hence Hopf algebras.   In data science, one is often confronted with a time series representing measurements of some quantity of interest. Usually, in a first step, features of the time series need to be extracted. These are numerical quantities that aim to succinctly describe the data and to dampen the influence of noise. In some applications, these features are also required to satisfy some invariance properties. Contents. The book consists of four parts, divided into fourteen chapters. The first part opens with a short introduction into the theory of knots and their classical polynomial invariants and closes with the definition of Vassiliev invariants. In part 2, we systematically study the graded Hopf algebra naturally.

I will present an overview of what Combinatorial Hopf Algebras (CHAs) are about by introducing definitions and Isomorphic to the free polynomial algebra with one generator at each degree. From combinatorial object to algebra Has a Hopf algebra structure product + coproduct + antipode which all interact nicely with each. Part One of the book is an overview of what the author calls quantum SL(2), which is an example of a Hopf algebra. The first two chapters are purely a review of algebra, with the third being an introduction to coalgebras, which the author, in a categorical sense, identifies as being dual to an s: 3.

In algebra and in particular in algebraic combinatorics, the ring of symmetric functions is a specific limit of the rings of symmetric polynomials in n indeterminates, as n goes to infinity. This ring serves as universal structure in which relations between symmetric polynomials can be expressed in a way independent of the number n of indeterminates (but its elements are neither polynomials.

These notes -- originating from a one-semester class by their second author at the University of Minnesota -- survey some of the most important Hopf algebras appearing in combinatorics. After introducing coalgebras, bialgebras and Hopf algebras in general, we study the Hopf algebra of symmetric functions, Hopf algebras and polynomial invariants of combinatorial structures.

A Combinatorial Hopf Algebra, in the sense of, is a pair (H, ζ) where H is a graded connected Hopf algebra and ζ: k → H is a character (a multiplicative linear map).

The most central combinatorial Hopf algebra in this sense is the pair (Q S y m, φ 1) where Q S y m = ⨁ n ≥ 0 Q S y m n and Q S y m n is the k-span of {M α: α ⊨ n}.

The binomial Hopf algebra is the ring of polynomials F[k] in one variable k, with the usual multiplicative structure; comultiplication de ned by (f(k)) = f(k 1 + 1 k) and (1) = 1 1.

We begin by defining a cate. This invaluable book is an introduction to knot and link invariants as generalised amplitudes for a quasi-physical process. The demands of knot theory, coupled with a quantum-statistical framework, create a context that naturally and powerfully includes a extraordinary range of interrelated topics in topology and mathematical physics.

The author takes a primarily combinatorial stance toward. Our approach here is to exploit the Hopf algebra struc-ture of families of trees in order to organize the combinato-rial computations required for the symbolic computation of differential invariants.

The goal of using Hopf algebras as an organizing principle for combinatorial computations was art iculated by Joni and Rota in [1O]. The close. specialize to Hilbert functions, and come from combinatorial Hopf algebras.

The motivation is that such invariants have three different aspects, which give them a rich structure. Given any combinatorial Hopf monoid Hwith a Hopf submonoid K, there is a natural quasisymmetric function K(h) associated to every element h 2H. The book begins with a basic and informal introduction to knot theory, giving many examples of knot invariants before the class of Vassiliev invariants is intro-duced.

This is followed by a detailed study of the algebras of Jacobi diagrams and 3-graphs, and the construction of functions on these algebras via Lie algebras. The.
