Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

Let g be a complex, semisimple Lie algebra. Drinfeld showed that the quantum group associated to g is isomorphic as an algebra to the trivial deformation of the universal enveloping algebra of g. In this paper we construct explicitly such an isomorphism when g = sl(n), previously known only for n=2.
