[1] A general formula is given in H. Bacry, Space time and degrees of freedom of the elementary particle, Comm. Math. Phys., t. 5, 1967, p. 97, for the semi-simple Lie groups. Let us recall it: 1/2(d - r) = g where d, r, g denote respectively the dimensionality of the Lie group, the number of its fundamental invariants, and the number of the generators of a maximal abelian subalgebra of the enveloping algebra. This formula comes from a more general framework in Gelfand and Kirillov, Sur les corps liés avec algèbres enveloppantes des algèbres de Lie, Publications Mathématiques, n° 31 (I. H. E. S.).

[2] [n/2] denotes the rank of the group, namely n/2 if n is even, (n - 1)/2 if n is odd.

[3] Let us note the approach of A. KIHLBERG in which he considers as subgroup the maximal compact group and enters in similar considerations (A. Kihlberg, Arkiv für Fysik, t. 30, 1965, p. 121). Many references on the study of particular non compact rotation groups are given in this paper. We recall some particular works in ref. [4]. | Zbl 0171.11703
