T. Kobayashi and B. Speh. Distinguished representations of SO(n+1,1) ×SO(n,1), periods and branching laws. preprint, 32 pages. arXiv: 1907.05890

Given irreducible representations Π and π of the rank one special orthogonal groups G=SO(n+1,1) and G'=SO(n,1) with nonsingular integral infinitesimal character, we state in terms of θ-stable parameter necessary and sufficient conditions so that
Hom_G'(Π|_G', π) ≠ {0}.
In the special case that both Π and π are tempered, this implies the Gross-Prasad conjectures for tempered representations of SO(n+1,1) ×SO(n,1) which are nontrivial on the center.

We apply these results to construct nonzero periods and distinguished representations. If both Π and π have the trivial infinitesimal character ρ then we use a theorem that the periods are nonzero on the minimal K-type to obtain a nontrivial bilinear form on the (g,K)-cohomology of the representations.
