A geometrical approach to Drinfeld’s quantum double

  • L. N. Zhang


The fundamental relations in QISM have been deduced geometrically by means of our geometrical approach. The related Hopf algebraA(R) and its dualU(R) have been introduced naturally. Using double crossproducts, the Drinfeld’s quantum doubleD(A) will emerge.
