On the global Gan-Gross-Prasad conjecture for general spin groups
In the 1990s, Benedict Gross and Dipendra Prasad formulated an intriguing conjecture connected with restriction laws for automorphic representations of a particular group. More recently, Gan, Gross, and Prasad extended this conjecture, now known as the Gan-Gross-Prasad Conjecture, to the remaining classical groups. Roughly speaking, they conjectured the non-vanishing of a certain period integral is equivalent to the non-vanishing of the central value of a certain L- function. Ichino and Ikeda refined the conjecture to give an explicit relationship between this central value of a L-function and the period integral. We propose a similar conjecture for a nonclassical group, the general spin group, and prove one case.
