Möbius covariance of iterated Dirac operators. (English) Zbl 1043.31500

In this paper the authors consider Möbius covariance of the iterated Dirac operators \(\underline D^l=(\sum_{i=1,n}e_i\partial_i)^l\). These questions are based on fundamental papers of L. Ahlfors in the period of 1984–1986. Previous results by B. Bojarski, mostly in a 1989 paper by him [in Proc. XXth Iranian Mathematics Conference (Tehran, 1989), Iranian Math. Soc., Mashhad (1989)], can be obtained by using a Fourier transform technique. The close relationship between fundamental solutions and conformal weights is also worked out. For the operator \(D=\partial_0+\underline D\) a corresponding covariance result could be obtained. The advantage of this approach seems to lie in the possiblity of generalizing this to some Lie groups.
