Let \(\zeta\) be a complex \(\ell\)th root of unity for an odd integer \(\ell>1\). For any complex simple Lie algebra \(\mathfrak g\), let \(u_\zeta=u_\zeta({\mathfrak g})\) be the associated “small” quantum enveloping algebra. This algebra is a finite dimensional Hopf algebra which can be realized as a subalgebra of the Lusztig (divided power) quantum enveloping algebra \(U_\zeta\) and as a quotient algebra of the De Concini–Kac quantum enveloping algebra \({\mathcal U}_\zeta\). It plays an important role in the representation theories of both \(U_\zeta\) and \({\mathcal U}_\zeta\) in a way analogous to that played by the restricted enveloping algebra \(u\) of a reductive group \(G\) in positive characteristic \(p\) with respect to its distribution and enveloping algebras. In general, little is known about the representation theory of quantum groups (resp., algebraic groups) when \(l\) (resp., \(p\)) is smaller than the Coxeter number \(h\) of the underlying root system. For example, Lusztig's conjecture concerning the characters of the rational irreducible \(G\)modules stipulates that \(p \geq h\). The main result in this paper provides a surprisingly uniform answer for the cohomology algebra \(\operatorname{H}^\bullet(u_\zeta,{\mathbb C})\) of the small quantum group.
