Summer Graduate School
|Location:||St. Mary's College|
The summer school is an introduction to the representation theory and harmonic analysis of reductive p-adic groups and will feature several lecture series covering the structure of reductive p-adic groups, the classification of their representations, key results from harmonic analysis, an introduction to the local Langlands conjectures, as well as connections to automorphic forms, real reductive groups, and finite groups of Lie type. Active engagement of the student through problem and Q&A sessions will be an important component. The goal is to equip students with knowledge that would help them to perform research in this area or apply these tools in nearby areas.
There will be three one-hour lectures per day, plus multiple Q&A and problem sessions each day.
• Local fields: Serre, Local fields, Chapters I,II,IV,VII.
• Algebraic groups: Borel, Chapters 3,4. A more modern reference can be found in Brian Conrad's lecture notes on his website.
