Connes, A. (ed.), Recent advances in operator algebras. Collection of talks given in the conference on operator algebras held in Orléans, France in July 1992. Paris: Société Mathématique de France, Astérisque. 232, 11-48 (1995).
Summary: Let \(H\) be a Hilbert space. In this article, under appropriate “regularity” conditions, we associate to every multiplicative unitary \(V\in {\mathcal L}(H\otimes H)\), a pair of Hopf \(C^*\)-algebras in duality. We show that the regular representation of the quantum \(E_\mu(2)\) group of Woronowicz is a multiplicative unitary satisfying our conditions and we calculate its covariant representations. We also calculate the Haar measures of \(E_\mu(2)\) and its Pontryagin dual and we give their modular theory.
