We shall consider the case where M = K/L is a homogeneous space of a compact connected Lie group K. Let us recall that A is an invariant algebra on M if A is a K-invariant uniformly closed subalgebra with unit in C(M ). In this section G, H denote the complexifications of K, L respectively. The group G is a complex reductive algebraic group with a reductive subgroup H. The main problem is to describe all invariant algebras on a given space M and to study their properties. Let us start with a particular class of invariant algebras.
