Abstract

We prove that if μa = mka*mK is the K-bi-invariant measure supported on the double coset K a K {succeeds or equal to} SU (n), for K = SO(n), then μa k is absolutely continuous with respect to the Haar measure on SU(n) for all a not in the normalizer of K if and only if k ≥ n. The measure, μa, supported on the minimal dimension double coset has the property that μa n-1 is singular to the Haar measure.
