The algebra dual to Woronowicz's deformation of the two-dimensional Euclidean group is constructed. The same algebra is obtained from SUq(2) via contraction on both the group and algebra levels. 
The quantum two-dimensional Poincaré group from quantum group contraction
A new derivation of the algebra of functions on the two‐dimensional Euclidean Poincare group is proposed. It is based on a contraction of the Hopf algebra Fun(SOq(3)), where the deformation parameterExpand
An R-matrix approach to the quantization of the Euclidean group E(2)
The R-matrices for two different deformations of the Euclidean group E(2), calculated in a two-dimensional representation, are used to determine the deformed Hopf algebra of the representativeExpand
Inhomogeneous quantum groups and their quantized universal enveloping algebras
AbstractThe quantum group IGLq (N), the inhomogenization of GLq(N), is formulated with $$\hat R$$ -matrices. Theq-deformed universal enveloping algebra is constructed as the algebra of regularExpand
q-deformed path integral
Abstract Using differential and integral calculi on the quantum plane which are invariant with respect to quantum inhomogeneous Euclidean group E(2) q , we construct the path integral representationExpand
The gamma -Poincare quantum group from quantum group contraction
We propose a contraction of the de sitter quantum group leading to a Poincare quantum group in any dimensions. The method relies on the coaction of the de Sitter quantum group on a non-commutativeExpand
Localization and the connection between and
In [1] we constructed homomorphisms from the quantized enveloping algebras of the Euclidean and Euclidean super Lie algebras, , onto their images in localizations of , respectively, and, conversely,Expand
Left regular representation and contraction of slq(2) to eq(2)
The left regular representation of the quantum algebras slq(2) and eq(2) are discussed and shown to be related by contraction. The reducibility is studied andq-difference intertwining operators areExpand
The geometry of a q-deformed phase space
Abstract. The geometry of the q-deformed line is studied. A real differential calculus is introduced and the associated algebra of forms represented on a Hilbert space. It is found that there is aExpand
Contraction of Quantum Groups and Lattice Physics
Inhomogeneous quantum groups obtained by contraction of semisimple ones are shown to be a natural symmetry for dynamical systems on a lattice. The pseudoeuclidean group in dimensions 1 + 1 is appliedExpand
Exponential mapping for non-semisimple quantum groups
The concept of a universal T matrix, introduced by Fronsdal and Galindo (1993) in the framework of quantum groups, is discussed here as a generalization of the exponential mapping. New examplesExpand


Three-dimensional quantum groups from contractions of SU(2) q
Contractions of Lie algebras and of their representations are generalized to define new quantum groups. An explicit and complete exposition is made for the one‐dimensional Heisenberg H(1)q and theExpand
Quantum E(2) group and its Pontryagin dual
The quantum deformation of the group of motions of the plane and its Pontryagin dual are described in detail. It is shown that the Pontryagin dual is a quantum deformation of the group ofExpand
An analogue of P.B.W. theorem and the universalR-matrix forUhsl(N+1)
One uses Drinfeld's quantum double construction and a basis á la Poincaré-Birkhoff-Witt inUhn+ to compute an explicit formula for the quantumR-matrix.
however (for it was the literal soul of the life of the Redeemer, John xv. io), is the peculiar token of fellowship with the Redeemer. That love to God (what is meant here is not God’s love to men)Expand
