摘要：Yangians first appeared in the work of Faddeev and his school in the late 1970s and early 1980s concerning the quantum inverse scattering method. A Yangian is an infinite-dimensional Hopf algebra. The name Yangian was introduced by Drinfeld in 1985 in honor of C.N. Yang.
We hope to cover the following topics in this discussion group in about 3 to 5 lectures:
1. Yangians and their different realizations;
2. The center of Yangians;
3. The twisted Yangians;
4. Quantization of Lie bialgebras.
Please contact Honglei Lang for the references of the lectures.
