Given a closed quantum subgroup of a locally compact quantum group, we study induction of unitary corepresentations of the quantum subgroup to the ambient quantum group. More aenerally, we study induction given a coaction of the quantum subgroup on a C*-algebra. We prove imprimitivity theorems that unify the existing theorems for actions and coactions of groups. This means that we define quantum homogeneous spaces as C*-algebras and that we prove Morita equivalence of crossed products and homogeneous spaces. We essentially use von Neumann algebraic techniques to prove these Morita equivalences between C*-algebras. (c) 2005 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
