Affiliation | IMSc |

Abstract | In this talk we show that given a finite dimensional Hopf algebra H over any field and associated to it a very natural inclusion A in B of infinite iterated crossed product algebras, then B is the crossed product of A by D(H) where D(H) is the Drinfeld double of H and further D(H) is the only finite dimensional Hopf algebra with this property. Further if H is semisimple and cosemisimple over algebraically closed field k, we produce an explicit embedding of P(D(H)) (planar algebra of D(H)) into (2)^P(H^*) (2-cabling planar algebra of H^*)and also characterise the image of P(D(H)) in (2)^P(H^*). |
