Title: Correspondences and N-simplex maps on groups and rings

The Yang--Baxter equation and Zamolodchikov's tetrahedron equation are two of the most fundamental equations of Mathematical Physics, and they are members of the general family of n-simplex equations for n=2 and n=3, respectively. The study of n-simplex maps, namely set-theoretical solutions to the n-simplex equation, was formally initiated by Drinfeld for n = 2.

In this talk, I will present new methods for constructing new solutions to 3- and 4-simplex equations. I will demonstrate the role of correspondences for deriving new n-simplex maps which do not belong to any of the known classification lists. Next, I will present some new tetrahedron maps on groups and rings. Moreover, I will show a method for constructing nontrivial 4-simplex extensions of tetrahedron maps. Finally, I will present some new n-simplex maps.

This talk is mainly based on the following papers:
