Event № 412
I will discuss a convolution operator associated with Harish-Chandra’s Schwartz space of discrete groups of any semisimple Lie group. I will show that the latter space carries a natural structure of convolution algebra. Besides, a control of the l^2 convolutor norm by the norm of this space holds. I will explain how this inequality is related to property RD and I will make a connection with the Baum-Connes conjecture.
