Covariant bi-differential operators on matrix space
Annales de l'Institut Fourier, Volume 67 (2017) no. 4, p. 1427-1455

A family of bi-differential operators from C (Mat(m,)×Mat(m,)) into C (Mat(m,)) which are covariant for the projective action of the group SL(2m,) on Mat(m,) is constructed, generalizing both the transvectants and the Rankin–Cohen brackets (case m=1).

On construit une famille d’opérateurs bi-différentiels de C (Mat(m,)×Mat(m,)) dans C (Mat(m,)) qui sont covariants pour l’action projective du groupe SL(2m,) sur Mat(m,). Dans le cas m=1, cette construction fournit une nouvelle approche des transvectants et des crochets de Rankin–Cohen.
