Pure Maths Colloquium: Representation growth of compact p-adic Lie groups

Presented by Benjamin Klopsch, Royal Holloway, University of London

22 October 2007 16:15 in CG 91

Representation growth is a comparatively new direction in Asymptotic Group Theory. After a brief introduction to the subject, I will report on a joint project with Christopher Voll. We are currently investigating the representation growth zeta functions of compact $p$-adic Lie groups. In my talk I will present recent results and discuss open problems. In particular, I will explain how to establish functional equations for zeta functions which arise in a suitable global setting. As I will indicate in my talk, this makes use of the orbit method and techniques from the subject of Igusa local zeta functions.
