Crossed product algebras and direct integral decomposition for Lie supergroups

Karl-Hermann Neeb and Hadi Salmasian

Vol. 282 (2016), No. 1, 213–232

For every finite dimensional Lie supergroup (G,g), we define a C -algebra A := A(G,g) and show that there exists a canonical bijective correspondence between unitary representations of (G,g) and nondegenerate -representations of A. The proof of existence of such a correspondence relies on a subtle characterization of smoothing operators of unitary representations previously studied by Neeb, Salmasian, and Zellner.

For a broad class of Lie supergroups, which includes nilpotent as well as classical simple ones, we prove that the associated C -algebra is CCR. In particular, we obtain the uniqueness of direct integral decomposition for unitary representations of these Lie supergroups.
