Название: Quantum symmetries on operator algebras
Авторы: Evans D.E., Kawahigashi Y.
In the last 20 years, the study of operator algebras has developed from a branch of functional analysis to a central field of mathematics with applications in both pure mathematics and mathematical physics. The theory was initiated by von Neumann and Murray as a tool for studying group representations and as a framework for quantum mechanics, and has since kept in touch with its roots in physics as a framework for quantum statistical mechanics and the formalism of algebraic quantum field theory. However, in 1981, the study of operator algebras took a new turn with the introduction by Vaughn Jones of subfactor theory, leading to remarkable connections with knot theory, 3-manifolds, quantum groups, and integrable systems in statistical mechanics and conformal field theory. This book, one of the first in the area, looks at these combinatorial-algebraic developments from the perspective of operator algebras. With minimal prerequisites from classical theory, it brings the reader to the forefront of research.
