Hall algebras and quantum Frobenius

Kevin Mcgerty
2010 Duke mathematical journal  
Lusztig has constructed a Frobenius morphism for quantum groups at an -th root of unity, which gives an integral lift of the Frobenius map on universal enveloping algebras in positive characteristic. Using the Hall algebra we give a simple construction of this map for the positive part of the quantum group attached to an arbitrary Cartan datum. To George Lusztig on his 60th birthday.
