"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.
