When is a riesz distribution a complex measure?

Alan D. Sokal

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Let Rα be the Riesz distribution on a simple Euclidean Jordan algebra, parametrized by α ∈ ℂ. I give an elementary proof of the necessary and sufficient condition for Rα to be a locally finite complex measure (= complex Radon measure).
