# Calculus for quantum SU(3)

For quantum $SU(2)$, Woronowicz gave a well differential calculus. If we denote the generators of quantum $SU(2)$ by $a,b,c,d$, then the ideal of ker($\epsilon)$ corresponding to this calculus is $$< a+ q^2d - (1+q^2),b^2,c^2,bc,(a-1)b,(d-1)c>.$$ This calculus can be shown to generalise the classical calculus on $SU(2)$ when $q=1$. Does anyone know of a (good) calculus (and its ideal) for quantum $SU(3)$?
