Title:Reciprocity and p-adic groups, I
Seminar:Noncommutative Geometry Seminar
Speaker:Nigel Higson, Penn State
Frobenius reciprocity connects the operations of induction and restriction in group representation theory. In the 1980's Bernstein discovered that for p-adic groups, the roles of parabolic induction and restriction can be exchanged, more or less, leading to a second reciprocity, or adjointness theorem. This is the foundation for much of p-adic representation theory. I'll try to give an account (over several lectures) of Bernstein's theorem. I'll examine a recent geometric account to due Bezrukavnikov and Kazhdan, as well as Bernstein's original argument.
