Abstract: Let be a connected semisimple matrix group of real rank one. Fix a minimal parabolic subgroup and form the (normalized) principal series representations . In the case of regular infinitesimal character, we explicitly determine (in terms of Langlands' classification) all irreducible submodules and quotients of . As a corollary, all embeddings of an irreducible Harish-Chandra module into principal series are computed. The number of such embeddings is always less than or equal to three. These computations are equivalent to the determination of zero -homology.
