© 2015 Cambridge University Press. The critical dimension of an ergodic non-singular dynamical system is the asymptotic growth rate of sums of consecutive Radon-Nikodým derivatives. This has been shown to equal the average coordinate entropy for product odometers when the size of individual factors is bounded. We extend this result to G-measures with an asymptotic bound on the size of individual factors. Furthermore, unlike von Neumann-Krieger type, the critical dimension is an invariant property on the class of ergodic G-measures.
© European Mathematical Society. We give criteria for establishing that a measure is Lp-improving. Many Riesz product measures and Cantor measures satisfy this criteria, as well as certain Markov measures.

© Association des Publications de l'Institut Henri Poincaré, 2015. In 1964 R. Gangolli published a Lévy-Khintchine type formula which characterised K-bi-invariant infinitely divisible probability measures on a symmetric space G/K. His main tool was Harish-Chandra's spherical functions which he used to construct a generalisation of the Fourier transform of a measure. In this paper we use generalised spherical functions (or Eisenstein integrals) and extensions of these which we construct using representation theory to obtain such a characterisation for arbitrary infinitely divisible probability measures on a non-compact symmetric space. We consider the example of hyperbolic space in some detail.

We give an elementary unified approach to rank one symmetric spaces of the noncompact type, including proofs of their basic properties and of their classification, with the development of a formalism to facilitate future computations. Our approach is based on the theory of Lie groups of H-type. An algebraic condition of H-type algebras, called J 2 , is crucial in the description of the symmetric spaces. The classification of H-type algebras satisfying J 2 leads to a very simple description of the rank one symmetric spaces of the noncompact type. We also prove Kostant's double transitive theorem; we describe explicitly the Riemannian metric of the space and the standard decompositions of its isometry group. Examples of the use of our theory include the description of the Poisson kernel and the admissible domains for convergence of Poisson integrals to the boundary. © 1998 The Journal of Geometric Analysis.

We aim to show, using the example of a Riemannian symmetric pair (G, K) = (SL 2 (), SO(2)), how contraction ideas may be applied to functional calculi constructed on coadjoint orbits of Lie groups. We construct such calculi on principal series orbits and generic orbits of the Cartan motion group V K , and show how the two are related. Since the calculi are adapted to the representations traditionally attached to the orbits, we recover at the Lie algebra level the contraction results of Dooley and Rice . © 1997 Heldermann Verlag.

Let X = i=1 Z l(i) be acted upon by the group = i=1 Z l(i) of changes in finitely many coordinates and a G-measure on X which is nonsingular for the -action on X. We consider cocycles on (X, , ) taking values in the ax + b group. We give a structure theorem for such cocycles, we define the mean ratio set which is a closed subgroup of the ax + b group and we exhibit for each closed subgroup a cocycle whose mean ratio set is the given subgroup.
A conjecture about the L 4 -norms of trigonometric polynomials on SU(2) is discussed and some partial results are proved.

We investigate a natural generalization of the problem of the description of the eigenvalues of the sum of two Hermitian matrices both of whose eigenvalues are known. We describe more generally the convolution of the invariant probability measures supported on any two adjoint orbits of a compact Lie group. Our techniques utilize the convexity results of Guillemin and Sternberg and Kirwan on the one hand, and the character formulae of Weyl and Kirillov on the other.

Results concerning a class of lacunary sets are generalized from compact abelian to compact nonabelian groups. This class was introduced for compact abelian groups by Bozejko and Pytlik; it includes the p-Sidon sets of Edwards, and Ross. A notion of test family is introduced and is used to give necessary' conditions for a set to be lacunary. Using this, it is shown that [formula omitted](2) has no infinite p-Sidon sets for [formula omitted]. © 1985, Cambridge University Press. All rights reserved.
