We introduce a one-parameter integral associated with a Euclidean Jordan algebra, and we give an explicit evaluation as a power series in spherical polynomials. We use the integral to bound certain Gaussian functions on the Jordan algebra introduced by Sahi, which play a key role in the construction of small unitary representations of the Tits-Kantor-Koecher conformal group of the Jordan algebra. This application involves only very special values of the parameter, and for those values we establish a formula for the integral as an algebraic function, which in particular implies that the Gaussian functions are square-integrable with respect to a natural measure.

This is joint work with Alexander Dvorsky.
