Abstract: We study a certain family of holomorphic discrete series representations of the semisimple Lie group $ G\, = \,SU(n,\,n)$ and the corresponding analytic continuation in the inducing parameter $ \lambda $. At the values of $ \lambda $ where the representations become reducible, we compute the composition series in terms of a Peter-Weyl basis on the Shilov boundary of the Hermitian symmetric space for G.
