A general procedure for constructing Yetter-Drinfeld modules from quantum principal bundles is introduced. As an application a Yetter-Drinfeld structure is put on the cotangent space of the Heckenberger-Kolb calculi of the quantum Grassmannians. For the special case of quantum projective space the associated braiding is shown to be non-diagonal and of Hecke type. Read More

We introduce generalizations of Kac-Moody 2-categories in which the quiver Hecke algebras of Khovanov, Lauda and Rouquier are replaced by the quiver Hecke superalgebras of Kang, Kashiwara and Tsuchioka. Read More

Trace formulas are investigated in non-commutative integration theory. The main result is to evaluate the standard trace of a Takesaki dual and, for this, we introduce the notion of interpolator and accompanied boundary objects. The formula is then applied to explore a variation of Haagerup's trace formula. Read More

We introduce an infinite family of quantum enhancements of the biquandle counting invariant we call biquandle virtual brackets. Defined in terms of skein invariants of biquandle colored oriented knot and link diagrams with values in a commutative ring $R$ using virtual crossings as smoothings, these invariants take the form of multisets of elements of $R$ and can be written in a "polynomial" form for convenience. The family of invariants defined herein includes as special cases all quandle and biquandle 2-cocycle invariants, all classical skein invariants (Alexander-Conway, Jones, HOMFLYPT and Kauffman polynomials) and all biquandle bracket invariants defined in previous work as well as new invariants defined using virtual crossings in a fundamental way, without an obvious purely classical definition.

We explicitely construct an SO(2)-action on a skeletal version of the 2-dimensional framed bordism bicategory. By the 2-dimensional Cobordism Hypothesis for framed manifolds, we obtain an SO(2)-action on the core of fully-dualizable objects of the target bicategory. This action is shown to coincide with the one given by the Serre automorphism. Read More

We study the topological structure of the automorphism groups of compact quantum groups showing that, in parallel to a classical result due to Iwasawa, the connected component of identity of the automorphism group and of the "inner" automorphism group coincide. For compact matrix quantum groups, which can be thought of as quantum analogues of compact Lie groups, we prove that the inner automorphism group is a compact Lie group and the outer automorphism group is discrete. Applications of this to the study of group actions on compact quantum groups are highlighted. Read More

A bosonization of the quantum affine superalgebra $U_q(\widehat{sl}(M|N))$ is presented for an arbitrary level $k \in {\bf C}$. Screening operators that commute with $U_q(\widehat{sl}(M|N))$ are presented for the level $k \neq -M+N$. Read More

We study junctions of Wilson lines in refined SU(N) Chern-Simons theory and their local relations. We focus on junctions of Wilson lines in antisymmetric and symmetric powers of the fundamental representation and propose a set of local relations which realize one-parameter deformations of quantum groups $\dot{U}_{q}(\mathfrak{sl}_{m})$ and $\dot{U}_{q}(\mathfrak{sl}_{n|m})$. Read More

We formulate a two-parameter generalization of the geometric Langlands correspondence, which we prove for all simply-laced Lie algebras. It identifies the q-conformal blocks of the quantum affine algebra and the deformed W-algebra associated to two Langlands dual Lie algebras. Our proof relies on recent results in quantum K-theory of the Nakajima quiver varieties. Read More

We define web categories describing intertwiners for the orthogonal and symplectic Lie algebras, and, in the quantized setup, for certain orthogonal and symplectic coideal subalgebras. They generalize the Brauer category, and allow us to prove quantum versions of some classical type $\mathbf{B}\mathbf{C}\mathbf{D}$ Howe dualities. Read More

We describe the quantization of a four-dimensional locally non-geometric M-theory background dual to a twisted three-torus by deriving a phase space star product for deformation quantization of quasi-Poisson brackets related to the nonassociative algebra of octonions. The construction is based on a choice of $G_2$-structure which defines a nonassociative deformation of the addition law on the seven-dimensional vector space of Fourier momenta. We demonstrate explicitly that this star product reduces to that of the three-dimensional parabolic constant $R$-flux model in the contraction of M-theory to string theory, and use it to derive quantum phase space uncertainty relations as well as triproducts for the nonassociative geometry of the four-dimensional configuration space. Read More

We give a basis of Nichols braided Lie algebras $\mathfrak L(V)$ while $\mathfrak B(V) $ is Nichols algebra of diagonal type with $\dim V=n\geq2$ and the generalized Dynkin diagram of $V$ with $p_{ii}\neq1$ for all $1\leq i\leq n$. Furthermore, we obtain the dimensions of Nichols braided Lie algebras $\mathfrak L(V)$ if $V$ is a connected finite Cartan type with Cartan matrix $(a_{ij})_{n\times n}$. Read More

We introduce a quotient of the affine Temperley-Lieb category that encodes all weight-preserving linear maps between finite-dimensional sl(2)-representations. We study the diagrammatic idempotents that correspond to projections onto extremal weight spaces and find that they satisfy similar properties as Jones-Wenzl projectors, and that they categorify the Chebyshev polynomials of the first kind. This gives a categorification of the Kauffman bracket skein algebra of the annulus, which is well adapted to the task of categorifying the multiplication on the Kauffman bracket skein module of the torus. Read More

We study a multi-parametric family of quadratic algebras in four generators, which includes coordinate algebras of noncommutative four-planes and, as quotient algebras, noncommutative three spheres. Particular subfamilies comprise Sklyanin algebras and Connes--Dubois-Violette planes. We determine quantum groups of symmetries for the general algebras and construct finite-dimensional covariant differential calculi. Read More

In this paper, we construct quantum twist automorphisms on quantum unipotent cells, which are quantum analogues of the Berenstein-Fomin-Zelevinsky twist automorphisms on unipotent cells. We show that those quantum twist automorphisms preserve the dual canonical bases of quantum unipotent cells. We also prove that quantum twist automorphisms admit the quantum analogues of Gei{\ss}-Leclerc-Schr\"oer's description of (non-quantum) twist automorphisms. Read More

Let $W$ be a Coxeter group. The goal of the paper is to construct new Hopf algebras that contain Hecke algebras $H_{\bf q}(W)$ as (left) coideal subalgebras. Our Hecke-Hopf algebras ${\bf H}(W)$ have a number of applications. Read More

Classifying Hopf algebras of a given dimension is a hard and open question. Using the generalized lifting method, we determine all finite-dimensional Hopf algebras over an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero whose coradical generates a Hopf algebra $H$ of dimension $16$ without the Chevalley property and the corresponding infinitesimal braidings are simple objects in $\HYD$. In particular, we figure out $8$ classes of new Hopf algebras of dimension $128$ without the Chevalley property. Read More

We introduce the notion of a non-degenerate solution of the braid equation on the incidence coalgebra of a locally finite order. Each one of these solutions induce by restriction a non-degenerate set theoretic solution over the underlying set. So, it makes sense to ask if a non-degenerate set theoretic solution on the underlying set of a locally finite order extends to a non-degenerate solution on its incidence coalgebra. Read More

A Lie version of Turaev's $\overline{G}$-Frobenius algebras from 2-dimensional homotopy quantum field theory is proposed. The foundation for this Lie version is a structure we call a \textit{$\frak{g}$-quasi-Frobenius Lie algebra} for $\frak{g}$ a finite dimensional Lie algebra. The latter consists of a quasi-Frobenius Lie algebra $(\frak{q},\beta)$ together with a left $\frak{g}$-module structure which acts on $\frak{q}$ via derivations and for which $\beta$ is $\frak{g}$-invariant. Read More

The Hennings invariant for the small quantum group associated to an arbitrary simple Lie algebra at a root of unity is shown to agree with the Chern-Simons (aka Jones-Witten or Reshetikhin-Turaev) invariant for the same Lie algebra and the same root of unity on all integer homology three- spheres, at roots of unity where both are defined. This partially generalizes the work of Chen, et al. ([CYZ12, CKS09]) which relates the Hennings and Chern-Simons invariants for SL(2) and SO(3) for arbitrary rational homology three-spheres.

This paper shows that generalizations of operads equipped with their respective bar/cobar dualities are related by a six operations formalism analogous to that of classical contexts in algebraic geometry. As a consequence of our constructions, we prove intertwining theorems which govern derived Koszul duality of push-forwards and pull-backs. Read More

After a brief survey of the basic definitions of the Grothendieck--Verdier categories and dualities, I consider in this context introduced earlier dualities in the categories of quadratic algebras and operads, largely motivated by the theory of quantum groups. Finally, I argue that Dubrovin's "almost duality" in the theory of Frobenius manifolds and quantum cohomology also must fit a (possibly extended) version of Grothendieck--Verdier duality. Read More

In this note, let $\A$ be a finitary hereditary abelian category with enough projectives. By using the associativity formula of Hall algebras, we give a new and simple proof of the main theorem in \cite{Yan}, which states that the Bridgeland's Hall algebra of 2-cyclic complexes of projective objects in $\A$ is isomorphic to the Drinfeld double Hall algebra of $\A$. In a similar way, we give a simplification of the key step in the proof of Theorem 4. Read More

We show that a class of braided Hopf algebras, which includes the braided $SU_q(2)$ is obtained by twisting. We show further examples and demonstrate that twisting of bicovariant differential calculi gives braided bicovariant differential calculi. Read More

We introduce the notion of a monoidal category enriched in a braided monoidal category $\mathcal V$. We set up the basic theory, and prove a classification result in terms of braided oplax monoidal functors to the Drinfeld center of some monoidal category $\mathcal T$. Even the basic theory is interesting; it shares many characteristics with the theory of monoidal categories enriched in a symmetric monoidal category, but lacks some features. Read More

We classify finite pointed braided tensor categories admitting a fiber functor in terms of bilinear forms on symmetric Yetter-Drinfeld modules over abelian groups. We describe the groupoid formed by braided equivalences of such categories in terms of certain metric data, generalizing the well-known result of Joyal and Street for fusion categories. We study symmetric centers and ribbon structures of pointed braided tensor categories and examine their Drinfeld centers. Read More

For a simple Lie algebra L of type A, D, E we show that any Belavin-Drinfeld triple on the Dynkin diagram of L produces a collection of Drinfeld twists for Lusztig's small quantum group u_q(L). These twists give rise to new finite-dimensional factorizable Hopf algebras, i.e. Read More

We show that the definition of unrolled Hopf algebras can be naturally extended to the Nichols algebra $\mathcal{B}$ of a Yetter-Drinfeld module $V$ on which a Lie algebra $\mathfrak g$ acts by biderivations. Specializing to Nichols algebras of diagonal type, we find unrolled versions of the small, the De Concini-Procesi and the Lusztig divided power quantum group, respectively. Read More

In this paper we describe a class of highly entangled subspaces of a tensor product of finite dimensional Hilbert spaces arising from the representation theory of free orthogonal quantum groups. We determine their largest singular values and obtain lower bounds for the minimum output entropy of the corresponding quantum channels. An application to the construction of $d$-positive maps on matrix algebras is also presented. Read More

Associated to quantum affine general linear Lie superalgebras are two families of short exact sequences of representations whose first and third terms are irreducible: the Baxter TQ relations involving infinite-dimensional representations; the extended T-systems of Kirillov--Reshetikhin modules. We make use of these representations over the full quantum affine superalgebra to define Baxter operators as transfer matrices for the quantum integrable model and to deduce Bethe Ansatz Equations, under genericity conditions. Read More

In this paper we study the Laplace-Beltrami operator on quantum complex hyperbolic spaces. We describe its action in terms of certain $q$-difference operators of second order and prove spectral theorems for these operators. The corresponding eigenfunctions are related to Al-Salam-Chihara polynomials. Read More

We explore the differential geometry of finite sets where the differential structure is given by a quiver rather than as more usual by a graph. In the finite group case we show that the data for such a differential calculus is described by certain Hopf quiver data as familiar in the context of path algebras. We explore a duality between geometry on the function algebra vs geometry on the group algebra, i. Read More

Let $\mathcal{D}$ be the Drinfeld double of the bosonization ${\mathfrak B}(V)\#\Bbbk G$ of a finite-dimensional Nichols algebra ${\mathfrak B}(V)$ over a finite group $G$. It is known that the simple $\mathcal{D}$-modules are parametrized by the simple modules over $\mathcal{D}(G)$, the Drinfeld double of $G$. This parametrization can be obtained by considering the head $\mathsf{L}(\lambda)$ of the Verma module $\mathsf{M}(\lambda)$ for every simple $\mathcal{D}(G)$-module $\lambda$. Read More

The $6j$-symbols for representations of the $\mathrm{SU}(2)$ quantum group are given by Hahn-Exton $q$-Bessel functions. This interpretation leads to several summation identities for the $q$-Bessel functions. Multivariate $q$-Bessel functions are defined, which are shown to be limit cases of multivariate Askey-Wilson polynomials. Read More

Let $C$ be a modular category of Frobenius-Perron dimension $dq^n$, where $q$ is a prime number and $d$ is a square-free integer. We show that if $q>2$ then $C$ is integral and nilpotent. In particular, $C$ is group-theoretical. Read More

We study modularity of the characters of a vertex (super)algebra equipped with a family of conformal structures. Along the way we introduce the notions of rationality and cofiniteness relative to such a family. We apply the results to determine modular transformations of trace functions on admissible modules over affine Kac-Moody algebras and, via BRST reduction, trace functions on regular affine $W$-algebras. Read More

Let $\A$ be a finitary hereditary abelian category and $D(\A)$ be its reduced Drinfeld double Hall algebra. By giving explicit formulas in $D(\A)$ for left and right mutations, we show that the subalgebras of $D(\A)$ generated by exceptional sequences are invariant under mutation equivalences. As an application, we obtain that if $\A$ is the category of finite dimensional modules over a finite dimensional hereditary algebra, or the category of coherent sheaves on a weighted projective line, the double composition algebra of $\A$ is generated by any complete exceptional sequence. Read More

We study a q-generalization of the classical Laguerre/Hermite orthogonal polynomials. Explicit results include: the recursive coefficients, matrix elements of generators for the Heisenberg algebra, and the Hankel determinants. The power of quadratic relation is illustrated by comparing two ways of calculating recursive coefficients. Read More

For any 4d N=2 SCFT, there is a subsector described by a 2d chiral algebra. The vacuum character of the chiral algebra reproduces the Schur index of the corresponding 4d theory. The Macdonald index counts the same set of operators as the Schur index, but the former has one more fugacity than the latter. Read More

We survey a number of classification tools developed in recent years and employ them to classify pseudo-unitary rank 5 premodular categories up to equivalence. Read More

In this article, we will define non-commutative covering spaces using Hopf-Galois theory. We will look at basic properties of covering spaces that still hold for these non-commutative analogues. We will describe examples including coverings of commutative spaces and coverings of non-commutative tori. Read More

Let $n>1$ be an integer, $\alpha\in{\mathbb C}^n$, $b\in{\mathbb C}$, and $V$ a $\mathfrak{gl}_n$-module. We define a class of weight modules $F^\alpha_{b}(V)$ over $\sl_{n+1}$ using the restriction of modules of tensor fields over the Lie algebra of vector fields on $n$-dimensional torus. In this paper we consider the case $n=2$ and prove the irreducibility of such 5-parameter $\mathfrak{sl}_{3}$-modules $F^\alpha_{b}(V)$ generically. Read More

The representation theory of a conformal net is a unitary modular tensor category. It is captured by the bimodule category of the Jones-Wassermann subfactor. In this paper, we construct multi-interval Jones-Wassermann subfactors for unitary modular tensor categories. Read More

The Drinfeld double of a finite dimensional Hopf algebra is a quasi-triangular Hopf algebra with the canonical element as the universal $R$-matrix, and one can obtain a ribbon Hopf algebra by adding the ribbon element. The universal quantum invariant of framed links is constructed using a ribbon Hopf algebra. In that construction, a copy of the universal $R$-matrix is attached to each crossing, and invariance under the Reidemeister III move is shown by the quantum Yang-Baxter equation of the universal $R$-matrix. Read More

Let $A$ be a central quantization of an affine Poisson variety $X$ over a field of characteristic $p>0.$ We show that the completion of $A$ with respect to a closed point $y\in X$ is isomorphic to the tensor product of the Weyl algebra with a local Poisson algebra. This result can be thought of as a positive characteristic analogue of results of Losev and Kaledin about slice algebras of quantizations in characteristic 0. Read More

Let $W_{m|n}$ be the (finite) $W$-algebra attached to the principal nilpotent orbit in the general linear Lie superalgebra $\mathfrak{gl}_{m|n}(\mathbb{C})$. In this paper we study the {\em Whittaker coinvariants functor}, which is an exact functor from category $\mathcal O$ for $\mathfrak{gl}_{m|n}(\mathbb{C})$ to a certain category of finite-dimensional modules over $W_{m|n}$. We show that this functor has properties similar to Soergel's functor $\mathbb V$ in the setting of category $\mathcal O$ for a semisimple Lie algebra. Read More

In this paper, holomorphic vertex operator algebra $U$ of central charge 24 with weight one Lie algebra $A_{8,3}A_{2,1}^2$ is proved to be unique. Moreover, a holomorphic vertex operator algebra of central charge 24 with weight one Lie algebra $F_{4,6}A_{2,2}$ is obtained by applying a $\mathbb{Z}_2$-orbifold construction to $U$. As a consequence, we verify that all $71$ Lie algebras in Schellekens' list can be realized as the weight one Lie algebras of some holomorphic vertex operator algebras of central charge $24$. Read More

We describe the center of the ring $\Diff(n)$ of $\h$-deformed differential operators of type A. We establish an isomorphism between certain localizations of $\Diff(n)$ and the Weyl algebra $\text{W}_n$ extended by $n$ indeterminates. Read More

We show that all unipotent classes in finite simple Chevalley or Steinberg groups, different from PSL_n(q) and PSp_{2n}(q), collapse (i.e. are never the support of a finite-dimensional Nichols algebra), with a possible exception on one class of involutions in PSU_n(2^m). Read More
