Material type: TextSeries: Lecture Notes in Mathematics: 2264.Publisher: Cham : Springer International Publishing, Imprint Springer. 2020Edition: 1st ed. 2020Description: 1 online resource (X, 376 p. 25 illus.) online resourceContent type: text Media type: computer Carrier type: online resourceISBN: 9783030524630; 3030524639Subject(s): Group theory | Functional analysis | Topological groups | Lie groups | Associative rings | Rings (Algebra) | Harmonic analysisAdditional physical formats: No titleDDC classification: 512.2 Online resources: Click here to access online Summary: 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 PoincarĂ©-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.Item type | Current location | Collection | Call number | Status | Date due | Barcode | Item holds |
