### $q$-Deforming Woronowicz's Leibniz Rule

The Woronowicz definition of a differential calculus over an algebra consists of a pair $(\Omega,$d$)$, where $\Omega$ is an $A-A$-bimodule, and
$$
\text{d}:A \to \Omega,
$$
is a bimodule map, ...

### Eigenvalues of the free sphere

Consider the usual sphere $S^{n-1}\subset\mathbb R^n$. By Stone-Weierstrass $C(S^{n-1})$ is generated by the standard coordinates $x_1,\ldots,x_n:\mathbb R^n\to\mathbb R$, and in fact we have the ...
