Jordan Algebras and bounded symmetric domains
I may apologize if the question is too basic for this newsgroup, but I
would like to clarify a point seen in a paper dealing with Jordan
and bounded symmetric domains.
The paper is:
On the bottom of page 3, it is mentionned that if D=G\K is a bounded
in a complex Jordan algebra V, K beeing a maximal compact subgroup of
the Lie algebra g of G can be identified with polynomials of degree at
most 2 in z (z in D).
I would like to know why the maximum degree is 2....
There is a reference mentionned in the paper but I have no access to a
university library with my working
hours. So any explanation or reference that can be accessed through the
web is welcome.
Thanks very much by advance,
