Algebras, bialgebras, quantum groups, and algebraic deformation

This paper is an accelerated model of comments introduced by way of the authors in lectures on the June, 1990 Amherst convention on Quantum teams. There we have been requested to explain, in as far as attainable, the fundamental ideas and effects, in addition to the current nation, of algebraic deformation idea. So this paper includes a mix of the previous and the recent.

Example text

If the trinomial doesn’t factor, or if you can’t figure out how to factor it, you can utilize the quadratic formula (see the section “Resorting to the Quadratic Formula” later in this chapter). The rest of this section deals with the trinomials that you can factor. Finding two solutions in a trinomial The trinomial x2 – 2x – 15 = 0, for example, has two solutions. You can factor the left side of the equation into (x – 5)(x + 3) = 0 and then set each factor equal to zero. When x – 5 = 0, x = 5, and when x + 3 = 0, x = –3.

Determine all the ways you can multiply two numbers to get bd, the constant term. 3. If the last term is positive, find the combination of factors from Steps 1 and 2 whose sum is that middle term; if the last term is negative, you want the combination of factors to be a difference. 4. Arrange your choices as binomials so that the factors line up correctly. 5. Insert the + and – signs to finish off the factoring and make the sign of the middle term come out right. Arranging the factors in the binomials provides no provisions for positive or negative signs in the unFOIL pattern — you account for the sign part differently.

For instance, if you have the expression 14 $ x 7 $ 3 x , you can rewrite the fractions by using negative x exponents and then simplify by using the rules for multiplying factors with the same base (see “Multiplying and dividing exponents”): 1 x 7 3 = x - 4 x 7 3x - 1 = 3x - 4 + 7 - 1 = 3x 2 $ $x $ $ x4 Implementing Factoring Techniques When you factor an algebraic expression, you rewrite the sums and differences of the terms as a product. For instance, you write the three terms x2 – x – 42 in factored form as (x – 7)(x + 6).
