Multiplizieren von Quantengruppen

Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: Quantengruppen als quantisierte Universelle Einhüllende von Lie-Algebren sind Gegenstand der vorliegenden Arbeit. Sie bietet eine Einführung in die Thematik, setzt lediglich Grundkenntnisse der Darstellungstheorie Halbeinfacher Lie-Algebren voraus, wie sie etwa bei Humpfreys, Jacobsen, Serre oder Bourbaki vermittelt werden, und ordnet die Darstellungstheorie der Quantengruppen in die Physik konformer Feldtheorien ein.

In general, this approach has the advantage that the infinitesimal form of a transformation can often be found in a straightforward way, whereas the finite form is often intractable. 4 Infinitesimal rotations and angular momentum operators In Classical Mechanics, the angular momentum of a mass m, moving in the plane about the origin of a cartesian reference frame with a momentum p is 56 Lz = r × p = rpsinφnz where nz is a unit vector normal to the plane, and φ is the angle between r and p. In component form, we have L z cl = xp y − yp x, where px and p y are the cartesian components of p.

It was Ein stein, abo ve all oth ers, who adv anced our und ersta nding of the tru e nat ure of space-time and relative mot ion.
