Title: Non-commutative harmonic analysis on certain semi-direct product groups
Authors: Aafif, Amal

Issue Date: 4-Sep-2007
Abstract: Non-commutative harmonic analysis on locally compact groups is generally a difficult task due to the nature of the group representations. We present an integral operator approach with induced representations to compute the generalized Fourier transform of three dimensional semi-direct product groups. We begin with an overview of representation theory and harmonic analysis on locally compact abelian groups, compact groups and locally compact separable Type I groups. We describe induced representations and the corresponding character formulas. We analytically compute the Fourier transform and the inversion formula for semi-direct product groups given by linear transformations on the plane. Finally, numerical results are presented for the Euclidean motion group and the hyperbolic motion group.
