Abstract: Let $ G$ be a connected semisimple matrix group of real rank one. Fix a minimal parabolic subgroup $ P = MAN$ and form the (normalized) principal series representations $ I_P^G(U)$. In the case of regular infinitesimal character, we explicitly determine (in terms of Langlands' classification) all irreducible submodules and quotients of $ I_P^G(U)$. 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 $ {\mathfrak{n}}$-homology.
