The size of characters of exceptional lie groups

  • Kathryn E. Hare (a1) and Karen Yeats (a1)

Abstract

Pointwise bounds for characters of representations of the compact, connected, simple, exceptional Life groups are obtained. It is a classical result that if μ is a central, continuous measure on such a group, then μdimG is absolutely continuous. Our estimates on the size of characters allow us to prove that the exponent, dimension of G, can be replaced by approximately the rank of G. Similar results were obtained earlier for the classical, compact Lie groups.
