Abstract: We give a formula for the universal -matrix of the quantized universal enveloping algebra This is similar to a previous formula due to Kirillov-Reshetikhin and Levendorskii-Soibelman, except that where they use the action of the braid group element on each representation , we show that one can instead use a system of weight preserving endomorphisms. One advantage of our construction is that it is well defined for all symmetrizable Kac-Moody algebras. However, we have only established that the result is equal to the universal -matrix in finite type.
