“Introduction of Hopf Algebras”

Hopf algebra, named after Heinz Hopf, is a structure that is simultaneously an (unital asso- ciative) algebra and a (counital coassociative) coalgebra, with these structures’ compatibility making it a bialgebra, and that moreover is equipped with an antiautomorphism satisfying a certain property. In this talk, we will introduce Hopf algebras and give some examples.
