|TITLE||[GS_M_All] Three W's Seminar: Integrable systems, quantum groups and string theory|
Quantum integrable systems are a special class of quantum systems in which exact calculations are possible. They play an essential role in physics, from descriptions of magnetism and cold atoms to (supersymmetric) particle physics and string theory. Exact methods have been developed for explointing the rich underlying mathematical structure of symmetries called "quantum group". In this talk, I will explain what a quantum group is, how it appears in quantum systems, and briefly mention an application to a particular problem in string theory.
