Abstract

© 2015 Académie des sciences. We generalize the decomposition of Uq(g) introduced by A. Joseph in [5] and link it, for g semisimple, to the celebrated computation of central elements due to V. Drinfeld [2]. In that case, we construct a natural basis in the center of Uq(g) whose elements behave as Schur polynomials and thus explicitly identify the center with the ring of symmetric functions.
