Hopf Algebras in General and in Combinatorial Physics: a practical introduction
by G.H.E. Duchamp, et al.
Publisher: arXiv 2008
Number of pages: 40
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, showing that in this latter case the axioms of Hopf algebra arise naturally. The text contains many exercises, some taken from physics, aimed at expanding and exemplifying the concepts introduced.

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.

Near-rings are one of the generalized structures of rings. This is a book on Smarandache near-rings where the Smarandache analogues of the near-ring concepts are developed. The reader is expected to have a background in algebra and in near-rings.

This book presents the basic theory of commutators in congruence modular varieties and some of its strongest applications. The authors take an algebraic approach, using some of the shortcuts that Taylor and others have discovered.
