Have you tried looking at some papers by German representation theorists who use the technique? –  Adam Hughes Nov 14 '10 at 19:08
It is amusing to recall once seeing some book in English published in maybe about 1950 whose author explained that there's no English word corresponding to the German word Faltung, so that was what he used. Apparently convolution became standard more recently than that. –  Michael Hardy Nov 15 '10 at 16:42

Anyway, in the PDF I'm referring to, it denotes a linear operator $V$ such that $V \rho(A) = \sigma(A) V$ for two representations of an algebra $A$, so the setting is slightly different. –  Pieter Naaijkens Nov 14 '10 at 19:32
Pieter: What's the difference to "$G$-equivariant"? Or "$G$-homomorphism"? –  darij grinberg Nov 15 '10 at 16:20
