## Abstract

Hopf algebras are algebraic structures which were first discovered in topology in the early '40s. Since then, they proved to be one of the most ubiquitous objects in mathematics: they arise in virtually every field, from number theory and algebraic geometry to quantum physics, passing through ring theory, probability theory, representation theory, Lie theory, operator theory, combinatorics, computer science, and many other. Some basic examples of Hopf algebras will be given, along with the description of some problems to be studied in connection with Hopf algebras. Concrete results, some of them very recent, will be used to illustrate the diversity of the subject and some of the techniques used.
