So far we have been working with symmetry breaking for a pair of the orthogonal groups (O(n + 1, 1), O(n, 1)). On the other hand, the Gross–Prasad conjectures (Chapters  11 and  13) are formulated for special orthogonal groups rather than orthogonal groups. In this chapter, we explain how to translate the results for (G, G′) = (O(n + 1, 1), O(n, 1)) to those for the pair of special orthogonal groups \((\overline {G},\overline {G'})=(SO(n+1,1), SO(n,1))\).
