This volume presents the proceedings from the Colloquium on Quantum Groups and Hopf Algebras held in Córdoba (Argentina) in 1999. The meeting brought together researchers who discussed recent developments in Hopf algebras, one of the most important being the influence of quantum groups.

Articles offer introductory expositions and surveys on topics of current interest that, to date, have not been available in the current literature. Surveys are included on characteristics of Hopf algebras and their generalizations, biFrobenius algebras, braided Hopf algebras, inner actions and Galois theory, face algebras, and infinitesimal Hopf algebras. The following topics are also covered: existence of integrals, classification of semisimple and pointed Hopf algebras, \(*\)-Hopf algebras, dendriform algebras, etc. Non-classical topics are also included, reflecting its applications both inside and outside the theory.


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in Hopf algebras and quantum groups; algebraists; specialists in combinatorics; mathematical physicists.
