"An introduction to Kreimer's Hopf algebra and Grossman-Larson Hopf algebra"

The Hopf algebra of rooted trees is introduced in Connes and Kreimer [1988], in the context of Quantum Field Theory. Considering the vector space with a basis consisting of rooted trees, then define different multiplications and coproducts to make it into different Hopf algebras. In this talk, we will introduce Kreimer's Hopf algebra and Grossman-Larson Hopf algebra.  We will also conclude a description of the isomorphism between the graded dual of Kreimer's Hopf algebra and Grossman-Larson Hopf algebra. The main references will be the paper "Combinatorics of Rooted Trees and Hopf Algebras", by M. Hoffman and "An introduction to Hopf algebras of trees", by Foissy.
