Research Interests

My research interests are Lie algebras and Lie superalgebras, quantum groups and integrable systems. More specifically, I worked on integrable aspects of the AdS/CFT correspondence and on the problem of non-ultralocality in integrable systems.

Integrability in AdS/CFT


The spectral problem in AdS/CFT can be cast into the problem of diagonalizing an integrable Hamiltonian. The dynamics can be encoded in a two-body R-matrix, satisfying the Yang-Baxter equation. The R-matrix is invariant under a non-conventional quantum group of Yangian type. This new quantum group exhibits a deformed coproduct and a novel symmetry ("secret" or "bonus") which extends the algebra only starting from the Yangian level one.
