\noindent (Journal Club ENS-IPhT) \\ \par After introducing the quantum inverse scattering method I will review the construction of Baxter Q-operators for closed rational spin chains. Subsequently, I will combine the ideas of the Q-operator construction with Sklyanin’s formulation of the quantum inverse scattering method for systems with boundaries to construct Q-operators for the open Heisenberg spin chains with diagonal boundary conditions.
