Group Hopf Algebra - Hopf Module Algebras and The Hopf Smash Product

Hopf Module Algebras and The Hopf Smash Product

Let H be a Hopf algebra. A (left) Hopf H-module algebra A is an algebra which is a (left) module over the algebra H such that and

whenever, and in sumless Sweedler notation. Obviously, as defined in the previous section turns into a left Hopf kG-module algebra, and hence allows us to consider the following construction.

Let H be a Hopf algebra and A a left Hopf H-module algebra. The smash product algebra is the vector space with the product


and we write for in this context.

In our case, A = F(X) and H = kG, and we have


In this case the smash product algebra is also denoted by .

The cyclic homology of Hopf smash products has been computed. However, there the smash product is called a crossed product and denoted - not to be confused with the crossed product derived from -dynamical systems.

Famous quotes containing the words product and/or smash:

    Cultural expectations shade and color the images that parents- to-be form. The baby product ads, showing a woman serenely holding her child, looking blissfully and mysteriously contented, or the television parents, wisely and humorously solving problems, influence parents-to-be.
    Ellen Galinsky (20th century)

    The spirit of the place is a strange thing. Our mechanical age tries to override it. But it does not succeed. In the end the strange, sinister spirit of the place, so diverse and adverse in differing places, will smash our mechanical oneness into smithereens.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
