Comparison between Drinfeld’s and Woronowicz’ constructions of quantum $$\text{SU}(2)$$ groups. (Comparaison des groupes $$\text{SU}(2)$$ quantiques de Drinfeld et de Woronowicz.) (French) Zbl 0617.16005
There are two independent notions of “quantum groups”, one due to Drinfeld, the other due to Woronowicz. In the case of $$\text{SU}(2)$$, the author shows that the second construction is a particular case of the first one.
