Compact matrix pseudogroups. (English) Zbl 0627.58034

The compact matrix pseudogroup is a non-commutative compact space endowed with a group structure. The precise definition is given and a number of examples is presented. Among them we have compact group of matrices, duals of discrete groups and twisted (deformed) SU(N) groups. The representation theory is developed. It turns out that the tensor product of representations depends essentially on their order. The existence and the uniqueness of the Haar measure is proved and the orthonormality relations for matrix elements of irreducible representations are derived. The form of these relations differs from that in the group case. This is due to the fact that the Haar measure on pseudogroups is not central in general. The corresponding modular properties are discussed. The Haar measures on the twisted SU(2) group and on the finite matrix pseudogroup are found.
