January 23. In this talk I will go over the definition of the Yangian as an associative algebra, and two seemingly different ways to tensor its representations. I will present a method of constructing the unique twist which conjugates one tensor product to the other, based on the existence/uniqueness results for the solutions of PDEs near nonsingular points. I will also show one very explicit formula for this twist, obtained in our joint work (GautamToledano LaredoWendlandt). Time permitting, we will speculate on its applications to geometry, integrability and mathematical physics.
