Combinatorial Yang-Baxter, 2

It is five years since Tatiana Gateva-Ivanova introduced me to the combinatorial Yang–Baxter equation. I may be slow; I have just understood why this is a good thing for a mathematician to study, aside from its applications in physics (whatever … Continue reading

Combinatorial Yang-Baxter

My paper with Tatiana Gateva-Ivanova is to be published. I’ll describe it here to demonstrate that one can find permutation groups almost anywhere. The Yang–Baxter equation (YBE) is a kind of braiding equation for a linear map R on V⊗V. … Continue reading
