## Abstract:

For a certain maximal parabolic*P*of ${\text {SL}}(n + 1,\mathbb {R})$, the complete invariant theory is presented for a class of

*P*-representation modules. These modules arise naturally from the geometry of ${\mathbb {P}^n}$. In particular, a means of listing all the exceptional invariants is described. This is a model problem for some parabolic invariant theory problems posed by Fefferman.
