### The "big bracket" in Lie bialgebras

I am looking for a well-written document such as a survey article or textbook that explores the subject of the "big bracket". This concept is briefly introduced in the appendix of Yvette ...

### Different Bialgebra/Hopf algebra structures on coalgebras

Given a coalgebra $C$, can there exist more than one algebra structure on $C$ giving it the structure of a bialgebra? I will also ask the same question for Hopf algebras.

### Indecomposable comodules

For a Hopf algebra $A$, we say that a comodule $V$ is indecomposable if it is not equivalent to a direct sum of irreducible comodules. $\bullet$ What is an example of a finite dimensional ...

### What is a coalgebra?

A coalgebra is a triple $(A,\Delta,\epsilon)$ consisting of a vector space, a coproduct, and a counit. Now as we all know, just like the unit in an algebra, the counit of a coalgebra is unique, i.e. ...

### Bialgebra maps and Hopf algebra maps

Let $H$ and $H'$ be two Hopf algebras, and let $\phi:H \to H'$ be an bialgebra map. Then is $\phi$ automatically a Hopf algebra map?

### Extending elements of the dual of a Hopf subalgebra to the Hopf dual of the whole algebra

I have a question about Hopf duals. To begin we can remind the definition: For an Hopf algebra $A$ over a field $k$, the Hopf dual $A^{\circ}$ is the subspace of the linear dual $\mathrm{Lin}_k(A,k)$ ...

### Name for a Hopf algebra whose only grouplike element is the identity?

For a $k$-Hopf algebra $H$ and element $h \in H$ is called grouplike is $\Delta(h) = h \otimes h$ and $\epsilon(h)=1_k$ ($\epsilon$ is the counit). The identity $1_H$ is clearly grouplike, but in ...

### Fiber product of group rings

Let $K$ be a field. For a group $G$ we write $K[G]$ for the group ring of $G$. Given group homomorphisms $F \to G, H \to G$ is the canonical map $$K[F \times_G H] \to K[F] \times_{K[G]} K[H]$$ an ...

### Bialgebras from mixed Bruhat sheaves

Let $A = \bigoplus_{i=0}^{+\infty} A_i$ be a graded bialgebra in a braided monoidal category $\mathcal V$. Then, according to Kapranov–Schechtman's article "Parabolic induction and perverse ...

### Show that a certain element is a linear combination of tensors

I posted this question on MSE but got no answer even after putting a bounty on it, so I figured I can try to ask here. Let $(A, \Delta: A \to A \otimes A)$ be bialgebra (unital and counital) such that ...

### Bialgebras with rigid representation theory

Repost from math.SE since no answer after two months, but feel free to close if not appropriate: Everything is finite-dimensional over a field $k$. Let $B$ be a bialgebra with $B\text{-mod}$ its ...
