A Rigidity Property for Quantum SU(3) Groups

  • Gabriel Nagy
Part of the Progress in Mathematics book series (PM, volume 172)


Quantum groups were introduced by Drinfeld in the mid 80’s (see [4]). Originally these objects were studied in connection with the inverse scattering problem. Later quantum groups became interesting objects in themselves and today make up a distinct field in mathematics.
