Abstract.
Let $ \pi $ be an irreducible HarishChandra $ (\mathfrak{g}, K) $module, and denote its associated variety by $ \mathcal{AV}(\pi) $. If $ \mathcal{AV}(\pi) $ is reducible, then each irreducible component must contain codimension one boundary component. Thus we are interested in the codimension one adjacency of nilpotent orbits for a symmetric pair $ (G, K) $. We define the notion of orbit graph and associated graph for $ \pi $, and study its structure for classical symmetric pairs; number of vertices, edges, connected components, etc. As a result, we prove that the orbit graph is connected for even nilpotent orbits.
Finally, for indefinite unitary group $ U(p, q) $, we prove that for each connected component of the orbit graph $ \Gamma_K(\mathcal{O}^G_\lambda) $ thus defined, there is an irreducible HarishChandra module $ \pi $ whose associated graph is exactly equal to the connected component.
