Abstract

An algebraic isomorphism of an extension of the Lie field of so(1,4) and an extension of the Poincaré Lie field was given in Havlicek and Moylan [J. Math Phys. 34, 5320 (1993)]. Here we use the isomorphism described in that paper in order to obtain matrix elements of the Poincaré Lie algebra generators in a normalizable basis for an arbitrary unitary spherical principal series representation of SO0(1,4).
