This e-book offers an creation to the idea of quantum teams with emphasis on their duality and at the atmosphere of operator algebras. half I of the textual content provides the fundamental conception of Hopf algebras, Van Daele's duality conception of algebraic quantum teams, and Woronowicz's compact quantum teams, staying in a merely algebraic atmosphere. half II makes a speciality of quantum teams within the environment of operator algebras. Woronowicz's compact quantum teams are taken care of within the surroundings of $C^*$-algebras, and the basic multiplicative unitaries of Baaj and Skandalis are studied intimately. an summary of Kustermans' and Vaes' accomplished thought of in the community compact quantum teams completes this half. half III results in chosen issues, similar to coactions, Baaj-Skandalis-duality, and methods to quantum groupoids within the surroundings of operator algebras. The booklet is addressed to graduate scholars and non-experts from different fields. basically uncomplicated wisdom of (multi-) linear algebra is needed for the 1st half, whereas the second one and 3rd half suppose a few familiarity with Hilbert areas, $C^*$-algebras, and von Neumann algebras.

The fusion of algebra, research and geometry, and their program to actual international difficulties, were dominant topics underlying arithmetic for over a century. Geometric algebras, brought and labeled via Clifford within the overdue nineteenth century, have performed a well-known position during this attempt, as noticeable within the mathematical paintings of Cartan, Brauer, Weyl, Chevelley, Atiyah, and Bott, and in purposes to physics within the paintings of Pauli, Dirac and others.

To some extent, the antipode of a Hopf algebra behaves like the inversion of a group: the inversion of a group is antimultiplicative, and the antipode of a Hopf algebra is both antimultiplicative and anticomultiplicative.
