Construction of Some Hopf Algebras

  • E. Sorace
Part of the Mathematical Physics Studies book series (MPST, volume 13)


It is a lucky opportunity - and I thank the organizers for the invitation to a citizen of a State not involved in the meeting - to speak in this Symposium, devoted to such an outstanding physicist, about a set of quantum groups which may have immediate relevance in physics. I mean those q-deformed Hopf algebras whose q = 1 limits are, besides the algebra of Heisenberg, the usuat kinematical symmetry groups, namely, Euclides, Poincaré, Galilei and Lorentz ones, which are noncompact or inhomogeneous or both.
