"Filtrations of \(p\)-adic groups"


Date: Mon, September 4, 2017
Time: 17:15
Place: Lecture Hall, Research II

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.
