This volume contains the proceedings of the Conference on Hopf Algebras and Tensor Categories, held July 4-8, 2011, at the University of Almería, Almería, Spain.

The articles in this volume cover a wide variety of topics related to the theory of Hopf algebras and its connections to other areas of mathematics. In particular, this volume contains a survey covering aspects of the classification of fusion categories using Morita equivalence methods, a long, self-contained, and comprehensive introduction to Hopf algebras in the category of species, and a summary of the status to date of the classification of Hopf algebras of dimensions up to 100. Among other articles in this volume are a study of normalized class sum and generalized character table for semisimple Hopf algebras, a contribution to the classification program of finite dimensional pointed Hopf algebras, an analysis of conjugacy classes related to a conjecture of De Concini, Kac, and Procesi on representations of quantum groups at roots of unity, a categorical approach to the Drinfeld double of a braided Hopf algebra via Hopf monads, an overview of Hom-Hopf algebras, and several discussions on the crossed product construction in different settings.

Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in Hopf algebra theory, tensor categories, quantum groups, representation theory, and combinatorics and conformal field theory.
