Title: Fundamentals on (hom-)bialgebras and ternary (hom-)bialgebras

These lectures address basics on (ternary) hom (bi-) algebras. In the preliminaries, notions of bimodules and matched pairs of associative algebras, Frobenius algebras and its double constructions are recalled. Then, the structures of hom-associative algebras, infinitesimal hom-bialgebras, hom-dendriform and hom-tridendriform algebras, hom-coalgebras and hom-bialgebras are characterized. Finally, hom-associative ternary algebras are discussed.
