Nilpotent Lie groups: Fourier inversion and prime ideals

Presented by: 
Ying-Fen Lin Queen's University Belfast
Tuesday 23rd May 2017 - 14:00 to 15:00
INI Seminar Room 2
In this talk, I will give a version of the Fourier inversion theorem for connected, simply connected nilpotent Lie groups G = exp(g) by showing that there is a continuous retract from the space of adapted smooth kernel functions defined on a sub-manifold of g^* into the Schwartz functions defined on G.  As an application, I will give a characterisation of a class of invariant prime ideals of L^1(G).
