New Directions in Hopf Algebras
by S. Montgomery, H. Schneider
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2002
Number of pages: 485
Hopf algebras have important connections to quantum theory, Lie algebras, knot and braid theory, operator algebras, and other areas of physics and mathematics. The book gives a clear picture of the current trends in this active field, with a focus on what is likely to be important in future research.

A text on universal algebra with a strong emphasis on applications and examples from computer science. The text introduces signatures, algebras, homomorphisms, initial algebras, free algebras, and illustrates them with interactive applications.

The primary object of this book is that of explaining with all the clearness at my command the leading principles of invariant algebra, in the hope of making it evident to the junior student that the subject is attractive as well as important.

This tutorial is intended to give an accessible introduction to Hopf algebras. The mathematical context is that of representation theory, and we also illustrate the structures with examples taken from combinatorics and quantum physics.
