Matrix coefficients of representations


Professor Dragan Milicic
of Utah & HKUST





In his work on representation theory of noncompact semisimple Lie groups Harish-Chandra used the idea that the asymptotic behavior of matrix coefficients at the infinity determines the properties of the representation. We are going to discuss our work with Casselman explaining Harish-Chandra's results on asymptotic expansion of matrix coefficients in terms of Deligne's theory of differential equations with regular singularities. Moreover, we will relate these expansions to more algebraic constructions (n-homology, Jacquet functors, etc...)
