Classical r-matrix of the su(2|2) SYM spin-chain

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this note we straightforwardly derive and make use of the quantum R-matrix for the su(2|2) SYM spin-chain in the manifest su(1|2)-invariant formulation, which solves the standard quantum Yang-Baxter equation, in order to obtain the correspondent (undressed) classical r-matrix from the first order expansion in the ``deformation'' parameter 2 \pi / \sqrt{\lambda}, and check that this last solves the standard classical Yang-Baxter equation. We analyze its bialgebra structure, its dependence on the spectral parameters and its pole structure. We notice that it still preserves an su(1|2) subalgebra, thereby admitting an expression in terms of a combination of projectors, which spans only a subspace of su(1|2) \otimes su(1|2). We study the residue at its simple pole at the origin, and comment on the applicability of the classical Belavin-Drinfeld type of analysis.
