In this graduate-level text the authors introduce the Yang-Baxter equation and its applications, an important are in representation theory and quantum groups. Topics, which include detailed proofs and explicit calculations, include a comprehensive introduction and review of background material, followed by examinations of intertwiners, fusion and exchange operators for Lie algebras and other specific situations, including Macdonald polynomials. The following chapters include topics such as quantum groups and the dynamical Weyl group.
