Chapter 1 Analysis on Homogeneous Groups
In this chapter we provide preliminaries for the analysis on homogeneous groups to make the use of the monograph more self-sufficient. We make a selection of topics which will be playing a role in the subsequent analysis. Thus, we first discuss relevant properties of general Lie groups and algebras and then concentrate on properties of homogeneous groups required for our further analysis. Lastly, we introduce the notion of the Euler operator on homogeneous groups and establish its main properties.
