The Quantum Cartan Algebra associated to a bicovariant differential calculus

Inner, Lie and exterior derivatives acting on differential forms are referred to as Cartan calculus operators. In this talk I present a generalization of these notions suitable for bicovariant calculi on quantum groups. Applications to algebraic models for equivariant cohomology of quantum groups will be also briefly discussed. This is a joint work with C. Pagani and A. Zampini.
