### Does there exist a Radon measure of full support on a non locally compact group that is translation invariant under some element?

It is known that a topological group is locally compact if and only if it has a Haar measure. However, I am curious about being translation invariant under at least one element. Does there exist a ...

### When does the measure integral of the form $\int_{\log(S)} f d \mu$ exist?

When does the measure integral of the form $\int_{\log(S)} f d \mu$ exist ? Here $\mu$ can be any measure (Lebesgue, Borel, Haar etc), $f$ is a measurable function, $S$ is any measurable set with ...

### Haar integral of rational function of unitaries

I'm trying to compute the following Haar integral over the unitary group: $$\int\limits_{\mathbb{U}(d)}\dfrac{1}{\sum_{k,l=1}^d u_{ik}\overline{u_{il}}c_{kl}}dU.$$ Is there anything known about the ...

### Invariant measure on affine charts of complex Grassmannian

Consider the complex Grassmannian $U(n)/U(k)\times U(n-k)$ with it's $U(n)$-invariant measure. The affine chart corresponding to $i_1, \ldots, i_k$ is given by $n\times k$ matrices for which the ...

### When does Haar measure decompose into products of such?

We get a "nice" Haar measure on $G=SL(2,R)$ in Iwasawa coordinates $G=NAK$ as follows: $dg=dx {dy\over y^2} dk$. Here $N=\{ n_x\}$, $A=\{a_y\}$ and $K=SO(2)$. Note that $dg=dn\, da\, dk$ is ...

### Haar measure coming from Pontryagin duality v/s Fourier inversion

Not research but advertising this question from mse in case someone wants to answer. I'm struggling with some bookkeeping associated with the Pontryagin duality theorem. I'm thinking about the first ...

### A group where the Weil topology induced by the Haar measure does not coincide with the original topology

Let $(G,\tau)$ be a locally compact Hausdorff topological group that is $\sigma$-finite with respect to the Haar measure $\mu:\mathcal{B}(G)\to[0,\infty]$ ($\mathcal{B}(G)$ is the Borel $\sigma$-...

### Pushforward of measure under surjective map

Let $X, Y, Z$ be measurable spaces with measures $\mu_X, \mu_Y, \mu_Z$ respectively. Let $\pi_Y : Y \times Z \rightarrow Y$ be the projection on $Y$ and $\pi_Z : Y \times Z \rightarrow Z$ the ...

### Is this a lattice?

Let $R$ be a locally compact ring (commutative with unit) and let $D\subset R$ be a discrete cocompact subring (cocompact means the additive group $R/D$ is compact). Let $G$ be a semisimple linear ... 41 views

I'm reading paper, which contains a lemma named as 'Invariance Implies Quadrature'. The lemma is stated as follows. Lemma Let $f$ be a function from $O(d)$ to $\mathbb{R}$ and let $H$ be a finite ...

### Comparing $X+Y$ and $X-Y$ for independent random variables with values in an abelian locally compact group

Let $G$ be an abelian locally (separable?) compact group with Haar measure $\mu$. Inspired by the interesting proof of A sum of two binomial random variables : Let $X$ and $Y$ be $G$-valued ...
