Harmonic Analysis for 4-Dimensional Real Frobenius Lie Algebras

Conference paper
Part of the Springer Proceedings in Mathematics & Statistics book series (PROMS, volume 290)


A real Frobenius Lie algebra is characterized as the Lie algebra of a real Lie group admitting open coadjoint orbits. In this paper, we study irreducible unitary representations corresponding to open coadjoint orbits for each of 4-dimensional Frobenius Lie algebras. We show that such unitary representations are square-integrable, and their Duflo–Moore operators are closely related to the Pfaffian of the Frobenius Lie algebra.
