Reciprocity Laws in the Theory of Dual Pairs

  • Roger Howe
Part of the Progress in Mathematics book series (PM, volume 40)


Let Sp2n(ℝ) = Sp be the real symplectic group in 2n variables (of rank n), and let \(\tilde SP\) be its two-fold (metaplectic) covering group. For any subgroup G of Sp, we denote the inverse image of G in \(\tilde SP\) by \(\rm \tilde G\).
