We construct a two-parameter family of actions ωk, a of the Lie algebra sl (2, R) by differential-difference operators on RN. Here, k is a multiplicity-function for the Dunkl operators, and a > 0 arises from the interpolation of the Weil representation and the minimal unitary representation of the conformal group. The action ωk, a lifts to a unitary representation of the universal covering of SL (2, R), and can even be extended to a holomorphic semigroup Ωk, a. Our semigroup generalizes the Hermite semigroup studied by R. Howe (k ≡ 0, a = 2) and the Laguerre semigroup by T. Kobayashi and G. Mano (k ≡ 0, a = 1). The boundary value of our semigroup Ωk, a provides us with (k, a)-generalized Fourier transformsFk, a, which includes the Dunkl transform Dk (a = 2) and a new unitary operator Hk (a = 1) as a Dunkl-type generalization of the classical Hankel transform.
