Isomorphism between the \(R\)-matrix and Drinfeld presentations of quantum affine algebra: types \(B\) and \(D\)

Naihuan Jing, Ming Liu and Alexander Molev


Following the approach of Ding and I. Frenkel (1993) for type \(A\), we showed in our previous work that the Gauss decomposition of the generator matrix in the \(R\)-matrix presentation of the quantum affine algebra yields the Drinfeld generators in all classical types. Complete details for type \(C\) were given therein, while the present paper deals with types \(B\) and \(D\). The arguments for all classical types are quite similar so we mostly concentrate on necessary additional details specific to the underlying orthogonal Lie algebras.
