Classical and Exceptional Root Systems and Quantizations

  • Hilja L. HuruEmail author


We present a method for quantizing semisimple Lie algebras. In Huru (Russ. Math. [2007]) we defined quantizations of the braided Lie algebra structure on a finite dimensional graded vector space V by quantizations of braided derivations on the exterior algebra of V * . We find quantizations of semisimple Lie algebras in this setting using the grading by their roots and shall go through all root systems, classical and exceptional.
