Introduction to quantum groups

Troels Bak Andersen
University of Aarhus, Denmark.


Quantum groups are a deformation of the enveloping algebra for semisimple Lie algebras and when the quantum parameter is not a root of unity in the base field their representations are very similar. I will introduce these and also talk a little about the root of unity case.
