Special Issue "Hopf Algebras, Quantum Groups and Yang-Baxter Equations 2013"
A special issue of Axioms (ISSN 2075-1680).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 August 2013)

The Yang-Baxter equation first appeared in a paper by the Nobel laureate C.N. Yang and in R.J. Baxter's work. At the Kyoto International Mathematics Congress (1990), three of the four Fields Medalists were awarded prizes for their work related to the Yang-Baxter equation.
This equation plays a crucial role in many areas of mathematics, physics, and computer science. Many scientists have used the axioms of various algebraic structures or computer calculations in order to produce solutions for it, but the full classification of its solutions remains an open problem.
As we continue the scientific directions of our previous special issue on various aspects of the Yang-Baxter equations and the related structures, we would like to gather together both interesting reviews and research papers.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Axioms is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
