For each simple Lie algebra g, we construct an algebra embedding of the quantum group Uq(g) into certain quantum torus algebra Dg via the positive representations of split real quantum group. The quivers corresponding to Dg is obtained from an amalgamation of two basic quivers, each of which is mutation equivalent to one describing the cluster structure of the moduli space of framed G-local system on a disk with 3 marked points on its boundary when G is of classical type. We derive a factorization of the universal R-matrix into quantum dilogarithms of cluster monomials, and show that conjugation by the R-matrix corresponds to a sequence of quiver mutations which produces the half-Dehn twist rotating one puncture about the other in a twice punctured disk.
In our previous work, we studied positive representations of split real quantum groups U q q~ (g R ) restricted to their Borel part and showed that they are closed under taking tensor products. But the tensor product decomposition was only constructed abstractly using the GNS representation of a C*-algebraic version of the Drinfeld–Jimbo quantum groups. Here, using the recently discovered cluster realization of quantum groups, we write the decomposition explicitly by realizing it as a sequence of cluster mutations in the corresponding quiver diagram representing the tensor product.
We study the tensor product decomposition of the split real quantum group Uqq~(sl(2,R)) from the perspective of finite dimensional representation theory of compact quantum groups. It is known that the class of positive representations of Uqq~(sl(2,R)) is closed under taking tensor product. In this paper, we show that one can derive the corresponding Hilbert space decomposition, given explicitly by quantum dilogarithm transformations, from the Clebsch-Gordan coefficients of the tensor product decomposition of finite dimensional representations of the compact quantum group Uq(sl2) by solving certain functional equations and using normalization arising from tensor products of canonical basis. We propose a general strategy to deal with the tensor product decomposition for the higher rank split real quantum group Uqq~(gR)
We study the positive representations Pλ of split real quantum groups Uqq (gℝ) restricted to the Borel subalgebra Uqq (bℝ). We prove that the restriction is independent of the parameter λ. Furthermore, we prove that it can be constructed from the GNS-representation of the multiplier Hopf algebra UqqC ∗ (b ℝ) defined earlier, which allows us to decompose their tensor product using the theory of the “multiplicative unitary”. In particular, the quantum mutation operator can be constructed from the multiplicity module, which will be an essential ingredient in the construction of quantum higher Teichmüller theory from the perspective of representation theory, generalizing earlier work by Frenkel-Kim.
The universal R operator for the positive representations of split real quantum groups is computed, generalizing the formula of compact quantum groups forumla by Kirillov–Reshetikhin and Levendorskiĭ–Soibelman, and the formula in the case of forumla by Faddeev, Kashaev, and Bytsko-Teschner. Several new functional relations of the quantum dilogarithm are obtained, generalizing the quantum exponential relations and the pentagon relations. The quantum Weyl element and Lusztig's isomorphism in the positive setting are also studied in detail. Finally, we introduce a C*-algebraic version of the split real quantum group in the language of multiplier Hopf algebras, and consequently the definition of R is made rigorous as the canonical element of the Drinfeld's double U of certain multiplier Hopf algebra Ub. Moreover, a ribbon structure is introduced for an extension of U.
