Abstract

Let $G$ be a locally compact group and $H$ a closed subgroup of $G$, and let $\pi$ and $\tau$ be irreducible representations of $G$ and $H$, respectively. If $G$ is compact then, by the classical Frobenius reciprocity theorem, $\pi$ is contained in the induced representation ${\rm ind}_H^G \tau$ if and only if $\pi|_H$ contains $\tau$. Topological Frobenius properties, which a general locally compact group may or may not satisfy, are obtained by replacing containment by weak containment of representations. We investigate the `if' and the `only if' assertions for nilpotent locally compact groups and for motion groups.

If $G$ is compact then, by the classical Frobenius reciprocity theorem, $\pi$ is contained in the induced representation ${\rm ind}_H^G \tau$ if and only if $\pi|_H$ contains $\tau$.
