Abstract

Let F,, r > 1, be a free group with r generators. In this paper, we study a principal series and a complementary series of irreducible unitary representations of F,, which are defined through the action of F, on its Poisson boundary, relative to a simple random walk. We show that the regular representation of F, can be written as a direct integral of the representations of the principal series and that the resulting harmonic analysis on the free group bears a close resemblance with the harmonic analysis of SL(2, IR).
