Uniqueness and existence of Whittaker models for the metaplictic group Academic Article uri icon


  • We introduce the notion of Whittaker models for representations of a metaplectic covering group of GL (2) and establish the uniqueness and existence of such models. Our results generalize corresponding results of Jacquet-Langlands, but the methods are new. © 1979 The Weizmann Science Press of Israel.
