(i) Since
[FHT, Sta98]
we know that for q even root of unity, there are
unitary irreducible finite dimensional representations of the Anti de Sitter
groups. Interestingly
(cf. [FGR]
p.122) the "fuzzy 3-sphere" is related
to the Wess-Zumino-Witten models and is conjectured to be related to
the non-commutative geometry of the quantum group Uq(sl2
for q
k 0, a root of unity.
(ii) The last remark suggests to look more closely at the phenomenon of di-
mensional reduction which appears in a variety of related problems. In
this paper we considered only

the context is in part different: the conformal group of 1 + 1 dimen-
sional space-time is infinite dimensional, and there are no black holes
But many considerations remain true, and furthermore many
group-theoretical properties find their origin at the 1 + 1 dimensional level,
e.g. the uniqueness of the extension to conformal group
other exemple of dimensional reduction is the fact that the massless UIR
of the 2+ 1 dimensional Poincare group Di and Rae satisfy Di
D(HO)EBD(HO) where D(HO) is the representation D(1/4)EBD(3/4) of
the metaplectic group (double covering of SL(2, IR)) which is the symme-
try of the harmonic oscillator in the deformation quantization approach
(see e.g. Section (2.2.4) in
(iii) What do the degenerate representations Di and Rae become under defor-
mation? Furthermore there may appear, for our nonstandard quantum
group 80(2, n)q, new representations that have no equivalent at the un-
deformed level (e.g. in a way similar to the supercuspidal representations
in the p-adic context). These may have interesting physical interpreta-
(iv) We have seen that for q even root of unity S0(2,n)q has some properties
of a compact Lie group. Our cosmological Ansatz suggests that the qAdS
black holes are "small." It is therefore natural to try and find a kind of
generalized trace that permits to give a finite volume for qAdS. Note
that, in contradistinction with infinite dimensional Hilbert spaces, the
notions of boundedness and compactness are the same for closed sets
in Mantel spaces, and that our context is in fact more Frechet nuclear
than Hilbertian. This raises the more general question to define in an
appropriate manner the notion of "q-compactness" (or "q-boundedness")
for noncommutative manifolds.
(v) Possibly in relation with the preceding question, one should perhaps con-
sider deformation triples in which the Hilbert space is replaced by a suit-
able locally convex topological vector space (TVS), on which D could be
(vi) The latter should yield a natural framework for implementing quantum
symmetries in deformation triples, since Frechet nuclear spaces and their
duals are at the basis of the topological quantum groups (and their duals)
introduced in the 90's, especially in the semi-simple case with preferred
deformations (see the review
We would thus in fact have
