Abstract: Invariant classes of functions on complex homogeneous spaces, with properties similar to those of the class of plurisubharmonic functions, are studied. The main tool is a regularization method for these classes, and the main theorem characterizes dual classes of functions (where duality is defined in terms of the local maximum property). These results are crucial in proving a duality theorem for complex interpolation of normed spaces, which is given elsewhere.
