Book DetailsMathematical Surveys and MonographsVolume: 31; 1989; 350 ppMSC: Primary 22
This book brings together five papers that have been influential in the study of Lie groups. Though published more than 20 years ago, these papers made fundamental contributions that deserve much broader exposure. In addition, the subsequent literature that has subsumed these papers cannot replace the originality and vitality they contain. The editors have provided a brief introduction to each paper, as well as a synopsis of the major developments which have occurred in the area covered by each paper.
Included here are the doctoral theses of Arthur, Osborne, and Schmid. Arthur's thesis is closely related to Trombi's paper insofar as both deal with harmonic analysis on real semisimple Lie groups, and, in particular, analysis on the Schwartz space of HarishChandra. Arthur's thesis is concerned with the image under the Fourier transform of the Schwartz space of a semisimple Lie group of real rank one, while Trombi's paper provides an expository account of the harmonic analysis associated to the decomposition of the Schwartz space under the regular representation. In his thesis, Osborne extends the AtiyahBott fixed point theorem for elliptic complexes to obtain a fixed point formula for complexes that are not elliptic. Schmid proves a generalization of the BorelWeil theorem concerning an explicit and geometric realization of the irreducible representations of a compact, connected semisimple Lie group. Langlands's fundamental paper provides a classification of irreducible, admissible representations of real reductive Lie groups.
