On a class of representations of quantum groups

This paper is a short account of the construction of a new class of the infinite-dimensional representations of the quantum groups. The examples include finite-dimensional quantum groups $U_q(\mathfrak{g})$, Yangian $Y(\mathfrak{g})$ and affine quantum groups at zero level $U_q(\hat{\mathfrak{g}})_{c=0}$ corresponding to an arbitrary finite-dimensional semisimple Lie algebra $\mathfrak{g}$. At the intermediate step we construct the embedding of the quantum groups into the algebra of the rational functions on the quantum multi-dimensional torus. The explicit parameterization of the quantum groups used in this paper turns out to be closely related to the parameterization of the moduli spaces of the monopoles. As a result the proposed constructions of the representations provide a quantization of the moduli spaces of the monopoles on $\RR^3$ and $\RR^2 \times S^1$.
