The Oscillator Representation and¶Groups of Heisenberg Type

We obtain the explicit reduction of the Oscillator representation of the symplectic group, on the subgroups of automorphisms of certain vector-valued skew forms Φ of “Clifford type”-equivalently, of automorphisms of Lie algebras of Heisenberg type. These subgroups are of the form G⋅ \Spin(k), with G a real reductive matrix group, in general not compact, commuting with Spin(k) with finite intersection. The reduction turns out to be free of multiplicity in all the cases studied here, which include some where the factors do not form a Howe pair. If G is maximal compact in G, the restriction to K⋅ \Spin(k) is essentially the action on the symmetric algebra on a space of spinors. The cases when this is multiplicity-free are listed in [R]; our examples show that replacing K by G does make a difference. Our question is motivated to a large extent by the geometric object that comes with such a Φ: a Fock-space bundle over a sphere, with G acting fiberwise via the oscillator representation. It carries a Dirac operator invariant under G and determines special derivations of the corresponding gauge algebra.
