Quantum Groups Booklet

This is a booklet of typeset lecture notes for a topics in algebra class on quantum groups B. Brubaker taught during the fall 2020 semester. It assumes no background with quantum groups, strong knowledge of abstract and linear algebra, and some familiarity with representation theory (in particular highest weight theory). The booklet itself can serve as a first course in quantum groups.
