Recommended texts

The following texts should be helpful. Majid's text is wonderful for getting to the heart of things very quickly, and Kassel's longer book also contains a lot of useful material.

Also relevant:

and the two 1990 papers of Turaev and Reshetikhin.

For the Drinfeld double, there are discussions in Majid and Kassel, but we recommend Reshetikhin and Semenov-Tian-Shansky, Quantum R-matrices and factorization problems (1988).
