If F is a homogeneous unitary Hermitian vector bundle over X, equal either to [F.sub.1] = [S.sup.2]T??, or to a sum of sub-bundles of [F.sub.1] appearing in the decomposition (3.8) of [12], we denote by C??(F) the isotypic component of the SO(6)-module [C.sup.[infinity]](F) corresponding to [gamma] [element of] [gamma].
