Generalized sine-Gordon models and quantum braided groups

Exceptional Seminar Benoit Vicedo (U. of Hertfordshire)

14:00 IC
room B741

I will present the quantized function algebras associated with various examples of generalized sine-Gordon models. These are quadratic algebras of the general Freidel-Maillet type, the classical limits of which reproduce the lattice Poisson algebra recently obtained for these models formulated as gauged Wess-Zumino-Witten models plus an integrable potential. More specifically, I will argue based on these examples that the natural framework for constructing quantum lattice integrable versions of generalized sine-Gordon models is that of affine quantum braided groups.
