The representations are analyzed within two approaches. It is shown that the Hopf $\ast$algebra $\cO(\rm{SU}_q(2))$ of the quantum group $\rm{SU}_q(2)$ decomposes into an orthogonal sum of projective Hopf modules corresponding to irreducible integrable $\ast$representations of the crossed product algebras and that each irreducible integrable $\ast$representation appears with multiplicity one. The projections of these projective modules are computed. The decompositions of tensor products of irreducible integrable $\ast$representations with spin $l$ representations of $\cU_q(\rm{su}_2)$ are given. The invariant state $h$ on $\cO(\rm{S}^2_{qr})$ is studied in detail. By passing to function algebras over the quantum spheres $\rm{S}^2_{qr}$, we give chart descriptions of quantum line bundles and describe the representations from the first approach by means of the second approach. Keywords: Quantum groups, unbounded representations. MSC: 17B37, 81R50,46L87 [ Fulltextpdf (368 KB)] for subscribers only.
