Pseudo-Hermitian Symmetric Spaces
Let G/H be an almost effective symmetric coset space of a connected Lie group G. We do not assume H to be compact. If G is simple, G/H is called a simple symmetric space. If the linear isotropy representation of H is irreducible (resp. reducible), then G/H is called simple irreducible (resp. reducible). If G/H admits a G-invariant complex structure J and a G-invariant pseudo-Hermitian metric (with respect to J), then a G/H is called pseudo-Hermitian. Simple symmetric spaces were classified infinitesimally by Berger .
