Abstract

We investigate quantum group generalizations of various density results from Fourier analysis on compact groups. In particular, we establish the density of characters in the space of fixed points of the conjugation action on $L^2(\mathbb{G})$, and use this result to show the weak* density and norm density of characters in $ZL^\infty(\mathbb{G})$ and $ZC(\mathbb{G})$, respectively. As a corollary, we partially answer an open question of Woronowicz. At the level of $L^1(\mathbb{G})$, we show that the center $\mathcal{Z}(L^1(\mathbb{G}))$ is precisely the closed linear span of the quantum characters for a large class of compact quantum groups, including arbitrary compact Kac algebras. In the latter setting, we show, in addition, that $\mathcal{Z}(L^1(\mathbb{G}))$ is a completely complemented $\mathcal{Z}(L^1(\mathbb{G}))$-submodule of $L^1(\mathbb{G})$.
