CalTitle1: Algebra Seminar: Gow -- Yangians of Lie superalgebras

Auth: anthonyh@asti.maths.usyd.edu.au

Yangians associated with Lie superalgebras have many applications in physics, but their algebraic structure is perhaps not as well understood as that of Yangians of classical Lie algebras. I will give an algebraic introduction to the Yangians of the general linear and special linear Lie superalgebras. In particular I will describe the relationship between the two and describe the centre of the Yangian Y(gl_{M|N}). This is a presentation of the results in my PhD thesis completed last year with Alex Molev. |
