### The topological Grothendieck group of a mixed category

I have recently become interested in the notion of mixed categories, as well as the topological Grothendieck group of their derived categories. I am still very new to the field. For that, I would like ...

### Continuity of left regular representation on space of continuous functions

I am teaching a course on locally compact groups and their representation theory and I am at a point where I would like to introduce continuous representations as generally as possible and provide ...

### 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 ... 122 views

### 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 ...
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 $M=GL_{n_1}(F) \times GL_{n_2}(F)$ ...
