For a simple finite dimensional Lie algebra g, its Cartan subalgebra h and its Weyl group W, the classical Chevalley theorem states that, by restricting ad-invariant polynomials on g to its Cartan subalgebra, one obtains all W-invariant polynomials on h, and the resulting restriction map is an isomorphism. I will explain how to generalize this statement to the case when a Lie algebra is replaced by a quantum group, and the target space of the polynomial maps is replaced by a finite dimensional representation of this quantum group. I will describe all prerequisites for stating the theorem and sketch the idea of the proof, most notably the notion of dynamical Weyl group introduced by Etingof and Varchenko.
