### Completing a representation to a unitary representation

Let $G$ be a discrete group acting on an infinite-dimensional complex vector space $V$ and preserving a positive-definite Hermitian form. Question. Is it always possible to complete $V$ to a unitary ...

### Find unitary transformation between two sets of matrices that represent group generators

I have a set of matrices $A_i$ that represent the generators of a finite group within a certain basis, and $B_i$ represent the same operators in a different basis. How can I find a unitary ...

### Kazhdan's property (T) for $\tilde{C}_2$-lattices

It is known that higher rank lattices have property (T) and also that lattices on 2-dimensional Euclidean buildings have property (T) provided the thickness $q+1$ of the building is large enough (...

### Which tensor power of a given representation contains the trivial one?

If $R$ is an irreducible representation of a simple Lie-groups $G$ I assume there is always a lowest integer $n$ such that the tensor product representation $R \otimes R \otimes \ldots \otimes R$ (n ...

### Unitary representation is strictly continuous

Let $G$ be a compact group and $u: G \to B(H)$ be a strongly continuous unitary representation on the Hilbert space $H$. Then is $u: G \to B(H)$ strictly continuous? That is, give $B(H)$ the topology ...

### Explicit tensor product decomposition for the representations of PSL(2,q)

$\DeclareMathOperator\PSL{PSL}$Let the type of the character theory of a finite group $G$ be the list $[[d_1,n_1], \dotsc, [d_k,n_k]]$ with $1=d_1 < \dotsb < d_k$ and $n_i$ the number of ...

### Clebsch–Gordan decomposition for $\mathrm{SU}(2)$, in indices

Let $\pi_m$, $m \geq 0$, be the unitary irreps of $\mathrm{SU}(2)$. The Clebsch–Gordan decomposition then gives that $$\pi_m \otimes \pi_n = \bigoplus_{k=0}^{\min(m,n)}\pi_{m+n-2k}.$$ But suppose I ...

### Some basic question on the parabolic induction

I would like to ask some basic question about parabolic induction. Let $F$ be a local field and $G=GL_n(F)$ and $P=MN$ its parabolic subgroup whose Levis subgroup $M=GL_{n_1}(F) \times GL_{n_2}(F)$ ...

### Is the linear span of irrep matrices a complete matrix basis?

Let $G$ be a finite or compact group and $\rho: G \to \mathrm{U}(d)$ a $d$-dimensional unitary representation of $G$. If $\rho$ is irreducible then the following seems to be true:  \mathrm{span}_\...

### Convergence of some object depending on functions with compact support

Let $G$ be a locally compact group with unimodular Haar measure $\mu$. We consider the Hilbert space $\mathscr{H}:= L_{\mu}^2(G)$ together with the unitary representation $\pi : G \to U(\mathscr{H})$ ...

### Unitary dual of the complex motion group $\mathbb C^2 \rtimes SU(2)$?

The real motion group of $\mathbb R^2$, $M(2)$ is the semi-direct product of $\mathbb R^2$ with the special orthogonal group $K = SO(2)$. A well known fact is that the unitary dual $\hat{G}$, of $G$ ...

### Do maximally almost periodic groups embed homeomorphically into their Bohr compactifications? [duplicate]

If $G$ is a Hausdorff topological group and $bG$ is its Bohr compactification, Wikipedia says that $G$ is called maximally almost periodic (MAP) if and only if the natural map $i : G \to bG$ is ...

### Number of orthogonal operators in representations of the Unitary Group

Let $G={\rm SU}(d)$ be the unitary group and $\rho(g)$ an irreducible representation of $g\in G$ in a $D$ dimensional Hilbert space $V$. Let $e_i\in V$ be the diagonal matrix whose only non-zero ...

### Fourier transform in the complex motion group

I am looking for a reference that deals with the dual of the complex motion group i.e., the semi-direct product of $\mathbb C^n$ with the special unitary group $K=SU(n)$. In particular, I am looking ...

### Discrete decomposability of unitary representation

[INTRODUCTION] Let $G$ be a non-compact simple Lie group, and $G'$ a reductive subgroup of $G$. Suppose that $\pi$ is a non-trivial (hence, infinite dimensional) irreducible unitary representation of ...
Let $G$ be a finite subgroup of the group $U_d(\mathbb{C})$ of unitary transformations of $\mathbb{C}^d$. Suppose that $G$ acts irreducibly but is imprimitive, meaning that there is a nontrivial ...
### Unitary dual of the motion group $M(n)$, for $n> 2$
The motion group of $\mathbb R^2$, noted by $G=M(2)$ is the semi-direct product of $\mathbb R^2$ with the special orthogonal group $K = SO(2)$. A well known fact is that the unitary dual $\hat{G}$, of ...
