Broken symmetries and their role in elementary particle and quantum field theory. Global study of broken symmetries in nonperturbative approach.

Broken or deformed symmetry is constructed as a multiparametric family of groups (or algebras) with boundaries containing the initial (nondeformed) ones.

The application of group (and algebraic) deformation theory in supergravity and gauge models of elementary particles interactions provides the possibility to obtain important results. For example, the boundary model "remember" the global invariants of the deformed symmetry and obeys the restrictions that cannot be described only in terms of the limit symmetry. (See these and other examples in the publications [1-4]).

Quantizations of Poisson systems that are "living" on group manifolds and homogenious spaces are studied as violations (deformations) of the primitive (commutative) Poisson-Lie algebra in the "direction" of some admissable Poisson bracket. A group or a homogenious space is considered as a Hopf algebra. The quantization is its deformation. This is why the deformed Hopf algebras and in particular quantum groups and algebras are so popular now in quantum field theory. (See, for example, the papers [5-10].)

Composing the deformed symmetry and investigating its properties one must use the differential geometry and algebraic topology. To solve the problems arising in the process of deformation quantization the group theoretical instruments and new algebraic methods must be developed. (See for example the papers [11-15].)
