Reviews

Presented in a clear, selfcontained, and wellorganized way, these introductory level lectures are highly recommended for individual or inclass use for acquiring basic knowledge of the groups \({\mathbf SU}(2)\), \({\mathbf SO}(3)\), \({\mathbf SL}(2, \mathbf R)\), and their function theories. Covering representations of \({\mathbf SU}(2)\), spherical harmonics on \(S_n\), representations of the group \({\mathbf SL}(2, \mathbf R)\) and spherical functions with respect to its maximal compact subgroup \({\mathbf SO}(2)\), these lectures also take account of some well known functions exhibited as spherical or matrixentry functions of unitary representations—for example, Jacobi polynomials and Legendre functions appear in this way for \({\mathbf SU}(2)\).
