A deformation of quantum affine algebra in squashed Wess-Zumino-Novikov-Witten models

### Abstract

We proceed to study infinite-dimensional symmetries in two-dimensional squashed Wess-Zumino-Novikov-Witten models at the classical level. The target space is given by squashed S^{3} and the isometry is SU (2)L × U(1)R. It is known that SU (2)L is enhanced to a couple of Yangians. We reveal here that an infinite-dimensional extension of U(1)R is a deformation of quantum affine algebra, where a new deformation parameter is provided with the coefficient of the Wess-Zumino term. Then we consider the relation between the deformed quantum affine algebra and the pair of Yangians from the viewpoint of the left-right duality of monodromy matrices. The integrable structure is also discussed by computing the r/s-matrices that satisfy the extended classical Yang-Baxter equation. Finally, two degenerate limits are discussed.
