Horospheres: geometry and analysis (II) (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
About 50 years ago Gelfand suggested a concepion of horospherical transform which, he hoped, must be an universal principle unifying non commutative harmonic analysis. I want to make several historic remarks (especialy, since this year is the centenial anniversary of Gelfand). I want to discuss the evolution of this fundamental conception for 50 years and how Gelfand’s dreams are looked today. I will discuss an elementary case of hyperboloids of any signature where there were not too much progress after old initial result of Gelfand-Graev.
