Idea

The associative Yang-Baxter equation (AYBE) is an associative analogue of the classical Yang-Baxter equation.

Definition

If $A$ is a $k$-algebra then, in Leningrad notation, the AYBE for a matrix $r\in A\otimes A$ is the condition

$r_{1 3} r_{1 2} - r_{1 2} r_{2 3} + r_{2 3} r_{1 3} = 0$

If $r = \sum a_i\otimes b_i$, then the operator $P:A\to A$ given by

$P(x) = \sum a_i x b_i$

is a Rota-Baxter operator of weight $0$, i.e. $(A,P)$ is a Rota-Baxter algebra of weight $\lambda = 0$.

The skew-symmetric solutions ($r_{1 2} = - r_{2 1}$) of AYBE give rise to

• an algebra with the trace quadratic Poisson bracket

• double Poisson structures on a free associative algebra

• an anti-Frobenius associative subalgebra of a matrix algebra
