 Synopsis:

Quantum Algebra was originated in the 80s in the works of professor L. D. Faddeev and the Leningrad school on the inverse scattering method in order to solve integrable models. They have many applications in mathematics and mathematical physics such as the classification of nodes, in the theory of integrable systems and the string theory.
 Requirements:
