Vertex-IRF transformations and quantization of dynamical r-matrices

Academic Article


  • Motivated by the correspondence between the vertex and IRF models in statistical mechanics, we define and study a notion of vertex-IRF transformation for dynamical twists that generalizes a usual gauge transformation. We use vertex-IRF transformations to quantize all completely degenerate dynamical r-matrices on finite-dimensional Lie algebras.
