Unitary representations of unimodular Lie groups in Bergman spaces

  • Giuseppe Della Sala
  • Joe J. Perez


For an arbitrary unimodular Lie group G, we construct strongly continuous unitary representations in the Bergman space of a strongly pseudoconvex neighborhood of G in the complexification of its underlying manifold. These representation spaces are infinite-dimensional and have compact kernels. In particular, the Bergman spaces of these natural manifolds are infinite-dimensional.
