Automorphism groups of causal symmetric spaces of Cayley type and bounded symmetric domains
- 28 Downloads
Symmetric spaces of Cayley type are a higher dimensional analogue of a one-sheeted hyperboloid in ℝ3. They form an important class of causal symmetric spaces. To a symmetric space of Cayley type M, one can associate a bounded symmetric domain of tube type D. We determine the full causal automorphism group of M. This clarifies the relation between the causal automorphism group and the holomorphic automorphism group of D.
