Room 3307 of Rood Hall

Upcoming on October 27:


Bialgebras and Hopf Algebras

Tim Clark, WMU

Abstract. We define bialgebras and Hopf algebras. After exploring some basic examples, we characterize cocommutative bialgebras (respectively cocommutative Hopf algebras) as monoid objects (respectively group objects) in an appropriate category.
