Left Braces and the Quantum Yang–Baxter Equation

  • H. Meng (a1), A. Ballester-Bolinches (a1) and R. Esteban-Romero (a1)


Braces were introduced by Rump in 2007 as a useful tool in the study of the set-theoretic solutions of the Yang–Baxter equation. In fact, several aspects of the theory of finite left braces and their applications in the context of the Yang–Baxter equation have been extensively investigated recently. The main aim of this paper is to introduce and study two finite brace theoretical properties associated with nilpotency, and to analyse their impact on the finite solutions of the Yang–Baxter equation.
