Actions of some pointed Hopf algebras on path algebras of quivers

Ryan Kinser and Chelsea Walton

Vol. 10 (2016), No. 1, 117–154

We classify Hopf actions of Taft algebras T(n) on path algebras of quivers, in the setting where the quiver is loopless, finite, and Schurian. As a corollary, we see that every quiver admitting a faithful n-action (by directed graph automorphisms) also admits inner faithful actions of a Taft algebra. Several examples for actions of the Sweedler algebra T(2) and for actions of T(3) are presented in detail. We then extend the results on Taft algebra actions on path algebras to actions of the Frobenius–Lusztig kernel uq(sl2), and to actions of the Drinfeld double of T(n).
