Abstract
Recently, Hartwig and the second author found a presentation for the threepoint 2 loop algebra via generators and relations. To obtain this presentation they defined an algebra by generators and relations, and displayed an isomorphism from to the threepoint 2 loop algebra. We introduce a quantum analog of which we call q. We define q via generators and relations. We show how q is related to the quantum group Uq(2), the Uq(2) loop algebra, and the positive part of [image omitted]. We describe the finite dimensional irreducible qmodules under the assumption that q is not a root of 1, and the underlying field is algebraically closed.
