Abstract: Filtrations of \(p\)-adic groups play an important role in the representation theory of \(p\)-adic groups. We will introduce \(p\)-adic numbers, \(p\)-adic groups and filtrations thereof defined by Moy and Prasad, and indicate some of their remarkable properties. We will then briefly survey the existing constructions of (supercuspidal) representations of \(p\)-adic groups and conclude with recent developments.
The colloquium is preceded by tea from 16:45 in the Resnikoff Mathematics Common Room, Research I, 127.
