In this chapter we expand upon Section  14.8 of the present volume, where the possibility of “hidden symmetry” in algebraic geometry was discussed. More precisely, our goal is to convince the reader that, as long as one starts with a reasonable algebra \(A\), the universal bi- and Hopf algebras \({{\,\mathrm{\underline{end}}\,}}(A)\) and \({{\,\mathrm{\underline{gl}}\,}}(A)\) introduced in Chapters  5 and  8 are well-behaved objects.
