About the Authors
  • The theory of unitary group representations began with finite groups, and blossomed in the twentieth century both as a natural abstraction of classical harmonic analysis, and as a tool for understanding various physical phenomena. Combining basic theory and new results, this monograph is a fresh and self-contained exposition of group representations and harmonic analysis on solvable Lie groups. Covering a range of topics from stratification methods for linear solvable actions in a finite-dimensional vector space, to complete proofs of essential elements of Mackey theory and a unified development of the main features of the orbit method for solvable Lie groups, the authors provide both well-known and new examples, with a focus on those relevant to contemporary applications. Clear explanations of the basic theory make this an invaluable reference guide for graduate students as well as researchers.

    • Concrete and example-based exposition is accessible to advanced graduate students and non-specialists
    • Contains the first self-contained presentation of the Auslander–Kostant theory
    • Includes a new layer-wise description of the structure of the orbit space for any finite-dimensional linear solvable action, which has various potential applications
