The Dunkl operators involve a multiplicity function k as parameter [C.F. Dunkl, Differential-difference operators associated to reflection groups, Trans. Amer. Math. Soc. 311 (1989) 167-183]. For positive real values of this function, we consider on the Schwartz space S (RN) a representation ωk of sl (2, R) defined in terms of the Dunkl-Laplacian operator. By means of a beautiful theorem due to E. Nelson, we prove that ωk exponentiates to a unique unitary representation of the universal covering group of SL (2, R). The representation theory is used to derive an identity of Bochner type for the Dunkl transform.
