# Yangians and quantum loop algebras

Let $$\mathfrak{g }$$ be a complex, semisimple Lie algebra. Drinfeld showed that the quantum loop algebra $$U_\hbar (L\mathfrak g )$$ of $$\mathfrak{g }$$ degenerates to the Yangian $${Y_\hbar (\mathfrak g )}$$. We strengthen this result by constructing an explicit algebra homomorphism $$\Phi $$ from $$U_\hbar (L\mathfrak g )$$ to the completion of $${Y_\hbar (\mathfrak g )}$$ with respect to its grading. We show moreover that $$\Phi $$ becomes an isomorphism when $${U_\hbar (L\mathfrak g… Expand
