Twisted deformations vs. cocycle deformations for quantum groups

This talk is based on a joint project with F. Gavarini where we study different versions of multiparameter quantum groups. Here we focus on the study of quantum universal enveloping algebras, in short QUEA's, for which we consider those arising from twisted deformations (in short TwQUEA's) and those arising from $ 2 $--cocycle deformations, usually called multiparameter QUEA's (in short MpQUEA's). Up to technicalities, we show that the two deformation methods are equivalent, in that they eventually provide isomorphic outputs, which are deformations (of either kinds) of the ``canonical'', well-known one-parameter QUEA by Jimbo and Lusztig. Thus, the two notions of TwQUEA's and of MpQUEA's --- which, in Hopf algebra theoretical terms are naturally dual to each other --- actually coincide.

Joint work with Fabio Gavarini (Univesitá degli studi di Roma "Tor Vergata").
