Title: Beta distributions and Sonine integrals for Bessel functions on symmetric cones
Language (ISO): en
Abstract: There exist several multivariate extensions of the classical Sonine integral representation for Bessel functions of some index μ + v with respect to such functions of lower index μ. For Bessel functions on matrix cones, Sonine formulas involve beta densities β_(μ,v) on the cone and trace already back to Herz. The Sonine representations known so far on symmetric cones are restricted to continuous ranges Re μ, Re v > μ_0 where the involved Beta densities are probability measures and the limiting index μ_0 ≥ 0 depends on the rank of the cone. It is zero only the one-dimensional case, but larger than zero in all multivariate cases. In this paper, we study the extension of Sonine formulas for Bessel functions on symmetric cones to values of v below the critical limit μ_0. This is achieved by an analytic extension of the involved Beta measures as tempered distributions. Following recent ideas by A. Sokal for Riesz distributions on symmetric cones, we analyze for which indices the obtained Beta distributions are still measures. At the same time, we characterize the indices for which a Sonine formula between the related Bessel functions exists. As for Riesz distributions, there occur gaps in the admissible range of indices which are determined by the so-called Wallach set.
