[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^\circ 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 · Zbl 0171.11703
