Book DetailsContemporary MathematicsVolume: 543; 2011; 277 ppMSC: Primary 22; 11; 20
This volume contains the proceedings of the AMS Special Session on Harmonic Analysis and Representations of Reductive, \(p\)adic Groups, which was held on January 16, 2010, in San Francisco, California.
One of the original guiding philosophies of harmonic analysis on \(p\)adic groups was HarishChandra's Lefschetz principle, which suggested a strong analogy with real groups. From this beginning, the subject has developed a surprising variety of tools and applications. To mention just a few, MoyPrasad's development of BruhatTits theory relates analysis to group actions on locally finite polysimplicial complexes; the AubertBaumPlymen conjecture relates the local Langlands conjecture to the BaumConnes conjecture via a geometric description of the Bernstein spectrum; the \(p\)adic analogues of classical symmetric spaces play an essential role in classifying representations; and character sheaves, originally developed by Lusztig in the context of finite groups of Lie type, also have connections to characters of \(p\)adic groups.
The papers in this volume present both expository and research articles on these and related topics, presenting a broad picture of the current state of the art in \(p\)adic harmonic analysis. The concepts are liberally illustrated with examples, usually appropriate for an upperlevel graduate student in representation theory or number theory. The concrete case of the twobytwo special linear group is a constant touchstone.
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in representations of \(p\)adic groups.
