Abstract: We prove a result on representations of separable -algebras which has application to, and was in fact motivated by, a problem concerning relations between unitary representations of a second countable locally compact group and those of a closed subgroup , when is of finite volume. The result is that if an irreducible representation is contained in , then for all in a set of positive measure. With and as above, it follows that for each there exists with , the induced representation. Frobenius reciprocity type results are derived as further consequences.
