Abstract: We consider the $ L^2$ mapping properties of a model class of strongly singular integral operators on the Heisenberg group $ \mathbf{H}^n$; these are convolution operators on $ \mathbf{H}^n$ whose kernels are too singular at the origin to be of Calderón-Zygmund type. This strong singularity is compensated for by introducing a suitably large oscillation.

Our results are obtained by utilizing the group Fourier transform and uniform asymptotic forms for Laguerre functions due to Erdélyi.
