Introduction
This paper is the second of two articles in real harmonic analysis. In the first paper
[A14], we established asymptotic formulas for some natural distributions on a real group.
In this paper we shall establish important relationships among the distributions, as the
group varies.
The group is the set of real points of a connected reductive group G over R. The distri
butions are weighted orbital integrals JM (, f) on G(R), and their invariant counterparts
IM (, f). Here, M G is a Levi subgroup of G, while MGreg(R) is a strongly G
