Real and imaginary forms of quantum groups
Existing definition of a real form of quantum group as a *-Hopf algebra is not quite satisfactory from the categorical point of view. In this paper another definition is proposed, which essentially coincides with the previous one for q∈ℝ and yields new examples for |q|=1. The last case is important because of applications of quantum groups to conformal field theory.
