Abstract: We prove the analog of Kostant's Theorem on Lie algebra cohomology in the context of quantum groups. In particular, it is shown that Kostant's cohomology formula holds for quantum groups at a generic parameter , recovering an earlier result of Malikov in the case where the underlying semisimple Lie algebra . We also show that Kostant's formula holds when is specialized to an th root of unity for odd (where is the Coxeter number of ) when the highest weight of the coefficient module lies in the lowest alcove. This can be regarded as an analog of results of FriedlanderParshall and PoloTilouine on the cohomology of Lie algebras of reductive algebraic groups in prime characteristic.
