A Generalized Cartan Decomposition for the Double Coset Space {\large$SU(2n+1)\backslash SL(2n+1,\mathbb{C})/Sp(n,\mathbb{C})$}
This paper gives a generalization of the Cartan decomposition for the non-symmetric space $SL(2n+1,\mathbb{C})/Sp(n,\mathbb{C})$. Our method uses the herringbone stitch introduced by T. Kobayashi \cite{cartan}, and as a corollary, we prove that $SU(2n+1)$ acts on the spherical variety $SL(2n+1,\mathbb{C})/Sp(n,\mathbb{C})$ in a strongly visible fashion with slice of real dimension $2n$.
