Semisimple symmetric spaces

  • Henrik Schlichtkrull
Part of the Progress in Mathematics book series (PM, volume 49)


In this chapter some basic properties of semisimple symmetric spaces are established, and a fundamental family of functions related to a semisimple symmetric space is defined. In the next chapter we shall use these results to study harmonic analysis on semisimple symmetric spaces.
