By Thomas Timmermann

This e-book presents an advent to the speculation of quantum teams with emphasis on their duality and at the surroundings of operator algebras. half I of the textual content offers the elemental idea of Hopf algebras, Van Daele's duality concept of algebraic quantum teams, and Woronowicz's compact quantum teams, staying in a only algebraic atmosphere. half II specializes in quantum teams within the atmosphere of operator algebras. Woronowicz's compact quantum teams are taken care of within the atmosphere of $C^*$-algebras, and the basic multiplicative unitaries of Baaj and Skandalis are studied intimately. an summary of Kustermans' and Vaes' entire thought of in the neighborhood compact quantum teams completes this half. half III results in chosen themes, reminiscent of coactions, Baaj-Skandalis-duality, and methods to quantum groupoids within the atmosphere of operator algebras. The e-book is addressed to graduate scholars and non-experts from different fields. merely uncomplicated wisdom of (multi-) linear algebra is needed for the 1st half, whereas the second one and 3rd half imagine a few familiarity with Hilbert areas, $C^*$-algebras, and von Neumann algebras.

More often than not the learn of algebraic buildings offers with the innovations like teams, semigroups, groupoids, loops, jewelry, near-rings, semirings, and vector areas. The learn of bialgebraic buildings bargains with the research of bistructures like bigroups, biloops, bigroupoids, bisemigroups, birings, binear-rings, bisemirings and bivector areas.
