Twisted Traces of Quantum Intertwiners¶and Quantum Dynamical R-Matrices¶Corresponding to Generalized Belavin–Drinfeld Triples

  • P. Etingof

We consider weighted traces of products of intertwining operators for quantum groups U q (?), suitably twisted by a “generalized Belavin–Drinfeld triple”. We derive two commuting sets of difference equations – the (twisted) Macdonald–Ruijsenaars system and the (twisted) quantum Knizhnik–Zamolodchikov–Bernard (qKZB) system. These systems involve the nonstandard quantum R-matrices defined in a previous joint work with T. Schedler ([ESS]). When the generalized Belavin–Drinfeld triple comes from an automorphism of the Lie algebra ?, we also derive two additional sets of difference equations, the dual Macdonald–Ruijsenaars system and the \textit{dual} qKZB equations.
