Geometric Analysis on Minimal Representations. Geometry and Quantum Theory. Nijmegen, the Netherlands, 28 June-2 July 2010.

Minimal representations are the smallest infinite dimensional unitary representations. The Weil representation for the metaplectic group, which plays a prominent role in number theory, is a classic example.

Minimal representations (viewed from groups) have ''maximal symmetries (viewed from representation spaces)''. We then initiate a new line of investigations to use minimal representations as a guiding principle to find interactions with other fields of mathematics.

Highlighting geometric analysis on minimal representations of generalized Lorentz group O(p,q), I plan to discuss conservative quantities of ultrahyperbolic equations, the generalization of the Fourier-Hankel transform on the L2-model, and its deformation.
