Chaturvedi, S and Mukunda, N (2002) The Schwinger SU(3) construction. I. Multiplicity problem and relation to induced representations. In: Journal of Mathematical Physics, 43 (11). pp. 5262-5277.
The Schwinger oscillator operator representation of SU(3) is analyzed with particular reference to the problem of multiplicity of irreducible representations. It is shown that with the use of an Sp(2,R) unitary representation commuting with the SU(3) representation, the infinity of occurrences of each SU(3) irreducible representation can be handled in complete detail. A natural "generating representation" for SU(3), containing each irreducible representation exactly once, is identified within a subspace of the Schwinger construction, and this is shown to be equivalent to an induced representation of SU(3).
