Direct Sum and Hyperbolic Complexification of Hopf Algebras

  • Zai-Zhe Zhong


The problem of how to obtain a hyperboliccomplexification of a Hopf algebra from two known Hopfalgebras is discussed. We prove that this Hopf algebrais isomorphic to a direct sum of the two known Hopf algebras, and that therefore this direct sum isalso a Hopf algebra. In particular, the result can beapplied to quantum enveloping algebras.
