Charlotte Scott Centre for Algebra

On Wednesday the 13th of March 2019, Beth Romano (University of Cambridge) will be visiting the Charlotte Scott Centre for Algebra and giving a seminar. Her talk will be at 3pm in INB 3305, and her talk details are as follows:

Talk title: Representations of *p*-adic groups via graded Lie algebras

Abstract: The structure of reductive *p*-adic groups arises from the interaction of Euclidean geometry and the arithmetic of *p*-adic fields. Reeder and Yu have built on this interaction to give a construction of certain “epipelagic” representations. Their construction has many benefits, but set of vectors that may be used as input for the construction is not well understood. I will talk about on-going work to classify this set, as well as its relationship to Vinberg–Levy theory of graded Lie algebras in characteristic *p*.
