Nichols algebras are graded braided Hopf algebras satisfying a universal property. Many structural results of a Nichols algebra can be obtained by studying itsWeyl groupoid and its homology. In the mini-workshop, introductions to and recent developments on these structures were presented and open problems were discussed.
