Dept. of Mathematics and Statistics, King Faisal University, P.O. Box 400, Al Ahsa 31982, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
Using a generalized Bochner type representation for Olshanski spherical pairs, we prove the boundedness of every SU(∞)-biinvariant continuous function of negative type on the infinite dimensional special linear group SL(∞).
Keywords: Function of negative type, function of positive type, spherical function, generalized Bochner theorem.
