A Plancherel formula is given for representative functions on a connected semisimple Lie group G. Since the matrix coefficients for the irreducible finite-dimensional representations are not necessarily square-integrable, an alternative to the Schur Orthogonality Relations is given using invariant differential operators. The corresponding operator analysis is summarized.
Keywords: Semisimple Lie group, Schur orthogonality relations, matrix coefficient, representative function, Plancherel formula.
