Complex Semisimple Quantum Groups and Representation Theory

; Robert Yuncken

Serie: Lecture Notes in Mathematics 2264

This book provides a thorough introduction to the theory of complex semisimple quantum groups, that is, Drinfeld doubles of q-deformations of compact semisimple Lie groups. The presentation is comprehensive, beginning with background information on Hopf algebras, and ending with the classification of admissible representations of the q-deformation of a complex semisimple Lie group.

Om boka

This book provides a thorough introduction to the theory of complex semisimple quantum groups, that is, Drinfeld doubles of q-deformations of compact semisimple Lie groups. The presentation is comprehensive, beginning with background information on Hopf algebras, and ending with the classification of admissible representations of the q-deformation of a complex semisimple Lie group.



The main components are:



- a thorough introduction to quantized universal enveloping algebras over general base fields and generic deformation parameters, including finite dimensional representation theory, the Poincare-Birkhoff-Witt Theorem, the locally finite part, and the Harish-Chandra homomorphism,



- the analytic theory of quantized complex semisimple Lie groups in terms of quantized algebras of functions and their duals,



- algebraic representation theory in terms of category O, and



- analytic representation theory of quantized complex semisimple groups.



Given its scope, the book will be a valuable resource for both graduate students and researchers in the area of quantum groups.
