Gröbner-Shirshov bases for quantum enveloping algebras

Abstract

We give a method for finding Gröbner-Shirshov bases for the quantum enveloping algebras of Drinfel’d and Jimbo, show how the methods can be applied to Kac-Moody algebras, and explicitly find the bases for quantum enveloping algebras of typeA N (forq 8≠1).
