Quantum symmetries of face models and the double triangle algebra

Roberto Trinchero

Full-text: Open access


Symmetries of trigonometric integrable two-dimensional statistical face models are considered. The corresponding symmetry operators on the Hilbert space of states of the quantum version of these models define a weak $*$-Hopf algebra isomorphic to the Ocneanu double triangle algebra.
