This monograph provides a entire remedy of significant new principles on Dirac operators and Dirac cohomology. Dirac operators are commonly used in physics, differential geometry, and group-theoretic settings (particularly, the geometric development of discrete sequence representations). The comparable notion of Dirac cohomology, that is outlined utilizing Dirac operators, is a far-reaching generalization that connects index idea in differential geometry to illustration idea. utilizing Dirac operators as a unifying topic, the authors reveal how one of the most vital leads to illustration thought healthy jointly whilst considered from this angle.

Key issues lined include:

* evidence of Vogan's conjecture on Dirac cohomology

* basic proofs of many classical theorems, corresponding to the Bott–Borel–Weil theorem and the Atiyah–Schmid theorem

* Dirac cohomology, outlined through Kostant's cubic Dirac operator, in addition to different heavily similar types of cohomology, akin to n-cohomology and (g,K)-cohomology

* Cohomological parabolic induction and $A_q(\lambda)$ modules

* Discrete sequence thought, characters, life and exhaustion

* sprucing of the Langlands formulation on multiplicity of automorphic varieties, with applications

* Dirac cohomology for Lie superalgebras

An very good contribution to the mathematical literature of illustration thought, this self-contained exposition bargains a scientific exam and panoramic view of the topic. the cloth may be of curiosity to researchers and graduate scholars in illustration concept, differential geometry, and physics.

Namely, from any linear combination x of two or more vn ’s which lies in U , we can obtain a shorter one by combining x and π(W )x. If we now act on vn by X and Y , we get all vk , as the scalars in the formulas defining the action can never be zero. Hence U = V . 3 Infinite-dimensional representations 25 If λ = k − 1 where k ≥ 1 is an integer of parity , then Vλ, contains two irreducible submodules, one with weights k, k + 2, k + 4, .

Since this holds for any i, we see that u must be a constant. We will be done if we prove that the only constants contained in Pin (V ) are 1 and −1. This can be proved by using another piece of structure that we describe in the following. 12. The principal antiautomorphism of C(V ). We denote by α the unique antiautomorphism of C(V ) equal to the identity on V . 4), α is given by α(1) = 1 and α(Z i1 . . Z ik ) = Z ik . . Z i1 . , on the image of k (V ) under the Chevalley map). , that α is an antiinvolution.

13, there are two kinds of irreducible highest weight (sl(2, C), S O(2))-modules: the finite-dimensional ones, and the highest weight discrete series (or limits of discrete series) representations. We already worked out the case when both factors are finite-dimensional. Suppose that V is an irreducible (infinite-dimensional) module with highest weight −n and that W is an irreducible finite-dimensional module with highest weight k, where n and k are positive integers. It is clear that the weights of V ⊗ W are −n + k, −n + k − 2, .
