## Abstract:

A parabolic subgroup of a reductive Lie group is called "good" if the center of the universal enveloping algebra of its nilradical contains an element that is semi-invariant of weight proportional to the modular function. The "good" case is characterized here by invariance of the set of simple roots defining the parabolic, under the negative of the opposition element of the Weyl group. In the "good" case, the unbounded Dixmier-Pukanszky operator of the parabolic subgroup is described, the conditions under which it is a differential operator rather than just a pseudodifferential operator are specified, and an explicit Plancherel formula is derived for that parabolic.## References
