On Semisimple Invariant CR Structures of Maximal Rank on the Compact Symplectic Group

We characterize semisimple invariant {\it CR} structures of maximal rank on the compact symplectic group $\mathrm{USp}_{2n}(\mathbb{C})$ for $n\neq 4$. This is equivalent to characterizing complex semisimple subalgebras of maximal dimension in $\mathrm{sp}_{2n}(\mathbb{C})$ having trivial intersection with $\mathrm{usp}_{2n}(\mathbb{C})$. We conjecture that our classification remains valid for $n=4$. This extends previous results by Ouna\"\i es-Khalgui and the author for the compact groups $\mathrm{SU}_{n}(\mathbb{C})$ and $\mathrm{SO}_{n}(\mathbb{R})$.

Keywords: Compact Lie group, CR structure, representations of simple Lie algebras.
