Quantum groups of dimensionpq 2

  • Shlomo Gelaki


In this paper we construct two families of non-trivial self-dual semisimple Hopf algebras of dimensionpq 2 and investigate closely their (quasi) triangular structures. The paper contains also general results on finite-dimensional triangular Hopf algebras, unimodularity, semisimplicity and ribbon structures of finite-dimensional semisimple Hopf algebras.
