Quantum Teichmüller space and Kashaev algebra

Ren Guo and Xiaobo Liu

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 9 (2009) 1791–1824
Abstract

Kashaev algebra associated to a surface is a noncommutative deformation of the algebra of rational functions of Kashaev coordinates. For two arbitrary complex numbers, there is a generalized Kashaev algebra. The relationship between the shear coordinates and Kashaev coordinates induces a natural relationship between the quantum Teichmüller space and the generalized Kashaev algebra.
