Character density in central subalgebras of compact quantum groups
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 $L^1(\mathbb{G})$.

A Homological Property and Arens Regularity of Locally Compact Quantum Groups
We characterize two important notions of amenability and compactness
of
a locally compact quantum group ${\mathbb G}$ in terms of certain
homological
properties. For this, we show that ${\mathbb G}$ is character
amenable if and only if it is both amenable and coamenable.
We finally apply our results to
Arens regularity problems of the quantum group algebra
$L^1({\mathbb G})$; in particular, we improve an interesting result
by Hu, Neufang and Ruan.

Affine Actions of $U_q(sl(2))$ on Polynomial Rings
We classify the affine actions of $U_q(sl(2))$ on commutative
polynomial rings in $m \ge 1$ variables.
We show that, up to scalar multiplication, there are two possible
actions.
In addition, for each action, the subring of invariants is a
polynomial ring in either $m$ or $m1$ variables,
depending upon whether $q$ is or is not a root of $1$.

Strong Asymptotic Freeness for Free Orthogonal Quantum Groups
It is known that the normalized standard generators of the free
orthogonal quantum group $O_N^+$ converge in distribution to a free
semicircular system as $N \to \infty$. In this note, we
substantially improve this convergence result by proving that, in
addition to distributional convergence, the operator norm of any
noncommutative polynomial in the normalized standard generators of
$O_N^+$ converges as $N \to \infty$ to the operator norm of the
corresponding noncommutative polynomial in a standard free
semicircular system. Analogous strong convergence results are obtained
for the generators of free unitary quantum groups. As applications of
these results, we obtain a matrixcoefficient version of our strong
convergence theorem, and we recover a well known $L^2$$L^\infty$ norm
equivalence for noncommutative polynomials in free semicircular
systems.

Compact Operators in Regular LCQ Groups
We show that a regular locally compact quantum group $\mathbb{G}$ is discrete
if and only if $\mathcal{L}^{\infty}(\mathbb{G})$ contains nonzero compact operators on
$\mathcal{L}^{2}(\mathbb{G})$.
As a corollary we classify all discrete quantum groups among
regular locally compact quantum groups $\mathbb{G}$ where
$\mathcal{L}^{1}(\mathbb{G})$ has the RadonNikodym property.

A Note on Amenability of Locally Compact Quantum Groups
In this short note we introduce a notion called ``quantum injectivity''
of locally compact quantum groups, and prove that it is equivalent
to amenability of the dual. Particularly, this provides a new characterization
of amenability of locally compact groups.

A Note on the Antipode for Algebraic Quantum Groups
Recently, Beattie, Bulacu ,and Torrecillas proved Radford's formula for the fourth power of the antipode for a coFrobenius Hopf algebra.
In this note, we show that this formula can be proved for any regular multiplier Hopf
algebra with integrals (algebraic quantum groups). This, of course, not only includes the case of a
finitedimensional Hopf algebra, but also that of any
Hopf algebra with integrals (coFrobenius Hopf algebras). Moreover, it turns out that
the proof in this more general situation, in fact, follows in a few lines from wellknown formulas obtained earlier in the
theory of regular multiplier Hopf algebras with integrals.
We discuss these formulas and their importance in this theory. We also mention their generalizations, in particular to the (in a certain sense) more general theory of locally compact quantum groups. Doing so, and also because the proof of the main result itself is very short, the present note becomes largely of an expository nature.
