## Abstract:

Let $G$ be a split real group with Weyl group $W$. Let $E$ be an irreducible representation of $W$. Let $V$ be the stable Lie algebra version of the coherent continuation representation of $W$. The main result of this paper is a formula for the multiplicity of $E$ in $V$. The formula involves the position of $E$ in Lusztig’s set $\coprod \mathcal M(\mathcal {G})$. The paper treats all quasi-split groups $G$ as well.## References
