An introduction to hopf algebras

The study of Hopf algebras spans many fields in mathematics including topology, algebraic geometry, algebraic number theory, Galois module theory, cohomology of groups, and formal groups and has wide-ranging  connections to fields from theoretical physics to computer science. This text is unique in...
