This book provides a thorough introduction to the theory of complex semisimple quantum groups, that is, Drinfeld doubles of q-deformations of compact semisimple Lie groups. The presentation is comprehensive, beginning with background information on Hopf algebras, and ending with the classification of admissible representations of the q-deformation of a complex semisimple Lie group.

 The main components are:

-   a thorough introduction to quantized universal enveloping algebras over general base fields and generic deformation parameters, including finite dimensional representation theory, the Poincaré-Birkhoff-Witt Theorem, the locally finite part, and the Harish-Chandra homomorphism,

-   the analytic theory of quantized complex semisimple Lie groups in terms of quantized algebras of functions and their duals,

-   algebraic representation theory in terms of category O, and

-   analytic representation theory of quantized complex semisimple groups.

 Given its scope, the book will be a valuable resource for both graduate students and researchers in the area of quantum groups.
