Cohomological Induction and Unitary Representations by Anthony W. Knapp

By Anthony W. Knapp

This ebook deals a scientific treatment--the first in e-book form--of the improvement and use of cohomological induction to build unitary representations. George Mackey brought induction in 1950 as a true research development for passing from a unitary illustration of a closed subgroup of a in the community compact team to a unitary illustration of the total workforce. Later a parallel development utilizing advanced research and its linked co-homology theories grew up due to paintings by way of Borel, Weil, Harish-Chandra, Bott, Langlands, Kostant, and Schmid. Cohomological induction, brought by way of Zuckerman, is an algebraic analog that's technically extra viable than the complex-analysis building and results in a wide repertory of irreducible unitary representations of reductive Lie groups.

The booklet, that's obtainable to scholars past the 1st 12 months of graduate university, will curiosity mathematicians and physicists who are looking to know about and reap the benefits of the algebraic facet of the illustration conception of Lie teams. Cohomological Induction and Unitary Representations develops the mandatory history in illustration concept and comprises an introductory bankruptcy of motivation, an intensive therapy of the "translation principle," and 4 appendices on algebra and analysis.

A first course in linear algebra

A primary path in Linear Algebra is an creation to the fundamental options of linear algebra, in addition to an creation to the options of formal arithmetic. It starts off with platforms of equations and matrix algebra sooner than stepping into the speculation of summary vector areas, eigenvalues, linear variations and matrix representations.

Elliptic Partial Differential Equations

Elliptic partial differential equations is likely one of the major and so much lively parts in arithmetic. In our ebook we research linear and nonlinear elliptic difficulties in divergence shape, with the purpose of offering classical effects, in addition to more moderen advancements approximately distributional suggestions. hence the booklet is addressed to master's scholars, PhD scholars and somebody who desires to commence study during this mathematical box.

45. , • )G on £ S(Z). Recall that we have been seeking a complex-analysis construction (or an algebraic analog of one) yielding irreducible unitary represen­ tations and complementing the real-analysis construction of parabolic induction. We intend for cohomological induction with Cs to be that construction. Before considering how close we are to the desired goal, we mention one more theorem as background. 46. ’^ ^ ( Z #) and pro®’£ ^ ( Z #) have finite length, and they have the same irreducible composition factors and multiplicities (b) all the (g, K) modules £/(Z) and TV(Z) have finite length, and £ (-i y(£;(z» = y,(-DW(z» j j in the Grothendieck group of finite-length (g, K) modules.

At the bottom right the quotient Gc / B is a complex manifold, and G / T therefore acquires an invariant complex structure. 10) may be identified with the holomorphic sections of the holomorphic line bundle over G / T 12 INTRODUCTION associated to the character , and G acts on the space of sections in the natural way. In short, the irreducible representation with highest weight k is realized as the space of global holomorphic sections of a certain holomorphic line bundle. Suppose now that A is analytically integral but no longer dominant.
