# Questions tagged [hopf-algebras]

A Hopf algebra is a vector space $H$ over a field $k$ endowed with an associative product $\times:H\otimes_k H\to H$ and a coassociative coproduct $\Delta:H\to H\otimes_k H$ which is a morphism of algebras. Unit $1:k\to H$, counit $\epsilon:H\to k$ and antipode $S:H\to H$ are also required. Such a structure exists on the group algebra $k G$ of a finite group $G$.

### Smallest finite dimensional $\mathbb{C}^*$-Hopf algebra that is not "strongly group theoretical"

In this question, let us call a finite dimensional $\mathbb{C}^*$ Hopf algebra $H$ strongly group theoretical if there exists a finite group $G$ such that one of the following three equivalent ...

### Does the canonical element associated to a finite dimensional $\mathbb{C}^*$-Hopf algebra always have finite order?

Let $\mathcal{A}$ be a finite dimensional $\mathbb{C}^*$-Hopf algebra. Let $B(\mathcal{A})$ be a basis of $\mathcal{A}$ and let $B(\mathcal{A}^* )=\{ \delta_x\in\mathcal{A}^* | x\in B(\mathcal{A}) \}$...

### The Balmer spectrum and the thick tensor ideals of the derived category of a Hopf algebra

Given a Hopf algebra $H$ over a field $\mathbb{k}$, the category of finite-dimensional left-$H$-modules naturally becomes a rigid monoidal category with exact monoidal product. Thus clearly the ...

### Weakly symmetric Hopf algebras

Let $A$ be a finite dimensional Hopf algebra over a field $K$ that is weakly symmetric (meaning $soc P = top P$ for each indecomposable projective $A$-module P). Question: Is $A$ then automatically ...

### quantum invariants, ribbon Tannakian duality and classification of ribbon Hopf algebras

In a nutshell, my question is: Q0: is there a classification of invariant of (framed) tangles arising from the Reshetikhin–Turaev construction? I will now make it more precise. One could define a ...

### Yetter-Drinfeld modules for Hopf monads

1. Context. 1.1. Classical Yetter-Drinfeld modules. Let $H$ a bialgebra in a braided monoidal category $\mathcal{C}$. A left-right Yetter-Drinfeld module over $H$ is a triple $(V,\rho,\Delta)$ ...

### Hopf monads in categorical probability theory

1. Context. According to [1], probability monads are arguably the most important concept in categorical probability theory. In [2] Fritz and Perrone argue that "in order for a monad to really ...

### Representations of $C\left(SO_q(n)\right)$

A complete classification of irreducible representations of the $C^*$-algebra $C(G_q)$, where $G_q$ is the $q$-deformation of a classical simply connected semisimple compact Lie group, was provided by ...

### Tannaka duality for Hopf algebroids

Setting. Let $k$ be a field, $A$ a finite-dimensional $k$-algebra, and $H$ a Hopf algebroid over $A$ with invertible antipode. Denote by $\operatorname{mod}(H)$ the category of finite-dimensional ...

### Generalized wreath products of commutative algebras with Hopf algebras

Fix $k$ a commutative ring (or, if more convenient, assume it’s a field or even an algebraically closed field of characteristic 0, which is the case I’m mainly interested in). Let $A$ be a unital ...

### When does Morita equivalence between two Hopf-von Neumann algebras imply also equivalence of their categories of comodules?

Let $A$ and $B$ be two Hopf-von Neumann (bi)algebras. Furthermore, let us assume that we know that they are Morita equivalent as von Neumann algebras (i.e. their categories of appropriate ...

### How to construct the quantum group $U_q(\mathfrak{sl}(2))$ from the quantum coordinate ring $\operatorname{SL}_q(2)$?

Let $k$ be the ground field, and $q$ be an invertible element with $q$ not being a root of unity. Let $\operatorname{SL}_q(2)$ be the quantum coordinate ring of $\operatorname{SL}(2)$ given explicitly ...
