N2 - Let be an irreducible symmetric space, where G is a noncompact, connected Lie group and K is a compact, connected subgroup. We use decay properties of the spherical functions to show that the convolution product of any r=r(G/K)continuous orbital measures has its density function in L2(G)and hence is an absolutely continuous measure with respect to the Haar measure. The number r is approximately the rank of G/K. For the special case of the orbital measures va1, supported on the double cosets K1iK, where belongs to the dense set of regular elements, we prove the sharp result that Va1 ∗ Va2 € L2 except for the symmetric space of Cartan class when the convolution of three orbital measures is needed (even though is absolutely continuous).
