On quantum group GLp,q(2)

Tanya Khovanova


Abstract

In the Hopf algebra GLp,q(2) the determinant is central iff p=q. In this case we put determinant to be equal to 1 to get SLq(2). In this paper I consider the case when p/q is a root of unity; and, consequently, a power of the determinant is central.
