We show that the differential structure of this representation is already completely characterized by the action of the Lie algebra $\g$ of $G$ on the dense subspace $\P=\C[M] \cdot e^{r^2}$, where $\C[M]$ denotes the algebra of regular functions of $M$ and $r$ the distance function in $\R^n$. We prove that the elements of this subspace constitute analytic vectors of the considered representation, and by taking into account the algebraic structure of $\P$, we obtain $G$invariant decompositions and discrete reducing series of $\Cvan(M)$. In case that $G$ is reductive, $K$ a maximal compact subgroup, $\P$ turns out to be a $(\g,K)$module in the sense of HarishChandra and Lepowsky, and by taking suitable subquotients of $\P$, respectively $\Cvan(M)$, one gets admissible $(\g,K)$modules as well as $K$finite Banach representations. Keywords: Gvarieties, Banach representations, real reductive groups, dense graph theorem, analytic elements, (g,K)modules, reducing series.
