# Symmetry Breaking for Representations of Rank One Orthogonal Groups

Share this page
*Toshiyuki Kobayashi; Birgit Speh*

The authors give a complete classification of intertwining operators
(symmetry breaking operators) between spherical principal
series representations of \(G=O(n+1,1)\) and
\(G'=O(n,1)\). They construct three meromorphic families of the
symmetry breaking operators, and find their distribution kernels and
their residues at all poles explicitly. Symmetry breaking operators
at exceptional discrete parameters are thoroughly studied.

The authors obtain closed formulae for the functional equations
which the composition of the symmetry breaking operators with the
Knapp--Stein intertwining operators of \(G\) and \(G'\)
satisfy, and use them to determine the symmetry breaking operators
between irreducible composition factors of the spherical principal
series representations of \(G\) and \(G'\). Some
applications are included.
