Polygon Seminar: Algebraic methods for classical integrability

Triangular Seminar Alessandro Torrielli (Surrey)

15:00 QMW
room G.O. Jones 610

We will review a series of algebraic techniques to describe classically integrable systems, with an eye to their quantisation. The topics we shall attempt to cover will be: 1. General introduction to classical integrability and notion of Lax pair 2. Classical r-matrices and exchange relations 3. Belavin-Drinfeld theorems and classifications 4. Quantisation and elements of algebraic Bethe ansatz
