The precise definition of Quasitriangular Hopf algebra can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quasitriangular_Hopf_algebra

But what is the reason behind the word "Quasitriangular"?

Is it because the R-matrix is a triangular matrix, or is it related to some properties of triangles?

Thanks for the enlightenment.
