|Title:||Simple Compact Quantum Groups|
|In the theory of compact quantum groups, two classes of examples have been
intensively studied. The first are obtained as various deformations of
compact Lie groups and were main objects of study in the theory of quantum
groups in the later 1980s and 1990s. The second are constructed as universal objects in
appropriate categories of quantum transformation groups and are in general not
obtainable as deformations of compact Lie groups.
The latter class of quantum groups have been focus of
study in recent years. Because of the existence of the latter classes of
quantum groups, it is a fundamental problem to classify simple
compact quantum groups.
In this talk, I will explain the notion of simple compact quantum groups
and indicate how to prove simplicity of (1) the universal orthogal groups,
(2) the quantum automorphism of finite spaces
and (3) deformations of simple Lie groups.|
