We compute the Dirac cohomology of the special unipotent representations of the real groups Sp(2n,R) and U(p,q). Unlike the simpler cases treated in the literature so far, the answer here is quite involved. In particular, the Dirac cohomology can contain K-types with high multiplicity.
Keywords: Lie group, Lie algebra, representation, special unipotent representation, Dirac operator, Dirac cohomology.
