Probabilistic Operator Algebra seminar: Yang-Baxter equations and subfactors
Seminar | September 23 | 3-5 p.m. | 736 Evans Hall
Hans G. Wenzl, UC San Diego
We show how solutions of the Yang-Baxter equation can be used to construct subfactors, under suitably nice conditions. We treat in detail the simplest case when the solutions define representations of the symmetric groups.
