# Finite Dimensional Algebras and Quantum Groups

*Bangming Deng; Jie Du; Brian Parshall; Jianpan Wang*

The interplay between finite dimensional algebras and Lie theory dates
back many years. In more recent times, these interrelations have become
even more strikingly apparent. This text combines, for the first time
in book form, the theories of finite dimensional algebras and quantum
groups. More precisely, it investigates the Ringel–Hall algebra
realization for the positive part of a quantum enveloping algebra
associated with a symmetrizable Cartan matrix and it looks closely at the
Beilinson–Lusztig–MacPherson realization for the entire quantum
\(\mathfrak {gl}_n\).

The book begins with the two realizations of generalized Cartan
matrices, namely, the graph realization and the root datum realization.
From there, it develops the representation theory of quivers with
automorphisms and the theory of quantum enveloping algebras associated
with Kac–Moody Lie algebras. These two independent theories eventually
meet in Part 4, under the umbrella of Ringel–Hall algebras. Cartan
matrices can also be used to define an important class of groups—Coxeter
groups—and their associated Hecke algebras. Hecke algebras
associated with symmetric groups give rise to an interesting class of
quasi-hereditary algebras, the quantum Schur algebras. The structure of
these finite dimensional algebras is used in Part 5 to build the entire
quantum \(\mathfrak{gl}_n\) through a completion process of a limit
algebra (the Beilinson–Lusztig–MacPherson algebra). The book is
suitable for advanced graduate students. Each chapter concludes with a
series of exercises, ranging from the routine to sketches of proofs of
recent results from the current literature.
