## Abstract

Differential calculi, generalizations of Woronowicz's four-dimensional calculus on SU_{q}(2), are introduced for quantized classical simple Lie groups in a constructive way. For this purpose, the approach of Faddeev and his collaborators to quantum groups was used. An equivalence of Woronowicz's enveloping algebra generated by the dual space to the left-invariant differential forms and the corresponding quantized universal enveloping algebra, is obtained for our differential calculi. Real forms for *q* ∈ ℝ are also discussed.
