Vector Bundles on Degenerations of Elliptic Curves and Yang-Baxter Equations

In this paper the authors introduce the notion of a geometric associative $r$-matrix attached to a genus one fibration with a section and irreducible fibres. It allows them to study degenerations of solutions of the classical Yang-Baxter equation using the approach of Polishchuk. They also calculate certain solutions of the classical, quantum and associative Yang-Baxter equations obtained from moduli spaces of (semi-)stable vector bu...
