Let G be a complex semisimple Lie group, K a maximal compact subgroup and V an irreducible representation of K. Denote by M the unique closed orbit of G in P(V) and by O its image via the moment map. For any measure on M we construct a map from the Satake compactification of G/K (associated to V) to the Lie algebra of K. For the K-invariant measure, this map is a homeomorphism of the Satake compactification onto the convex envelope of O. For a large class of measures the image of the map is the…

Convexity and Commuting Hamiltonians

The converse was proved by A. Horn [5], so that all points in this convex hull occur as diagonals of some matrix A with the given eigenvalues. Kostant [7] generalized these results to any compact Lie

In the recent study of automorphic functions [2], [4], [7], it has become necessary to take boundaries of symmetric bounded domains (or more generally, of symmetric Riemannian spaces) into account

Remarks on the Satake Compactifications

This article has three independent parts. The first one is a simplification, using some old results of the author, of a construction of the compactifications recently given by A. Borel and L. Ji. The
