    ABSTRACT: We study the ring of regular functions of classical spherical orbits $R(\mathcal{O})$ for $G = Sp(2n,\mathbb{C})$. In particular, treating $G$ as a real Lie group with maximal compact subgroup $K$, we focus on a quantization model of $\mathcal{O}$ when $\mathcal{O}$ is the nilpotent orbit $(2^{2p}1^{2q})$. With this model, we verify a conjecture by McGovern and another conjecture by Achar and Sommers for such orbits. Assuming the results in [Barbasch 2008], we will also verify the Achar-Sommers conjecture for a larger class of nilpotent orbits.

    ABSTRACT: Cuspidal representations of a reductive p-adic group G over a field of characteristic different from p are relatively injective and projective with respect to extensions that split by a U-equivariant linear map for any subgroup U that is compact modulo the centre. The category of smooth representations over a field whose characteristic does not divide the pro-order of G is the product of the subcategories of cuspidal representations and of subrepresentations of direct sums of parabolically induced representations.

    ABSTRACT: We show that, for a sheet or a Lusztig stratum S containing spherical conjugacy classes in a connected reductive algebraic group G over an algebraically closed field in good characteristic, the orbit space S/G is isomorphic to the quotient of an affine subvariety of G modulo the action of a finite abelian 2-group. The affine subvariety is a closed subset of a Bruhat double coset and the abelian group is a finite subgroup of a maximal torus of G. We show that sheets of spherical conjugacy classes in a simple group are always smooth and we list which strata containing spherical classes are smooth.

    ABSTRACT: Let W be a Coxeter group. We show that a certain power series involving a sum over all involutions in W can be expressed in terms of the Poincare series of W, at least in the case where W is an affine Weyl group. (The case where W is finite is already known,)

    ABSTRACT: Let a reductive algebraic group over an algebraically closed field of good characteristic be given. Attached to a nilpotent element of its Lie algebra, we consider a family of algebraic varieties, which incorporates classical objects such as Springer fiber, Spaltenstein varieties, and Hessenberg varieties. When the nilpotent element is of standard Levi type, we show that the varieties of this family admit affine pavings that can be obtained by intersecting with the Schubert cells corresponding to a suitable Borel subgroup.

    ABSTRACT: Let $G$ be the group of points of a split reductive group over a finite extension of ${\mathbb Q}_p$. In this paper, we compute the dimensions of certain classes of locally analytic $G$-representations. This includes principal series representations and certain representations coming from homogeneous line bundles on $p$-adic symmetric spaces. As an application, we compute the dimensions in Colmez' unitary principal series of ${\rm GL}_2({\mathbb Q}_p)$.

    ABSTRACT: We construct a bar involution for quantum symmetric pair coideal subalgebras $B_{\mathbf{c},\mathbf{s}}$ corresponding to involutive automorphisms of the second kind of symmetrizable Kac-Moody algebras. To this end we give unified presentations of these algebras in terms of generators and relations extending previous results by G. Letzter and the second named author. We specify precisely the set of parameters $\mathbf{c}$ for which such an intrinsic bar involution exists.

    ABSTRACT: For a local non-Archimedean field $K$ we construct ${\rm GL}_{d+1}(K)$-equivariant coherent sheaves ${\mathcal V}_{{\mathcal O}_K}$ on the formal ${\mathcal O}_K$-scheme ${\mathfrak X}$ underlying the symmetric space $X$ over $K$ of dimension $d$. These ${\mathcal V}_{{\mathcal O}_K}$ are ${\mathcal O}_K$-lattices in (the sheaf version of) the holomorphic discrete series representations (in $K$-vector spaces) of ${\rm GL}_{d+1}(K)$ as defined by P. Schneider \cite{schn}. We prove that the cohomology $H^t({\mathfrak X},{\mathcal V}_{{\mathcal O}_K})$ vanishes for $t>0$, for ${\mathcal V}_{{\mathcal O}_K}$ in a certain subclass. The proof is related to the other main topic of this paper: over a finite field $k$, the study of the cohomology of vector bundles on the natural normal crossings compactification $Y$ of the Deligne-Lusztig variety $Y^0$ for ${\rm GL}_{d+1}/k$ (so $Y^0$ is the open subscheme of ${\mathbb P}_k^d$ obtained by deleting all its $k$-rational hyperplanes).

    ABSTRACT: Let G be an almost simple, simply connected algebraic group over an algebraically closed field of characteristic p>0. In this paper we restate our conjecture from 1979 on the characters of irreducible modular representations of G so that it is now directly applicable to any dominant highest weight.

    ABSTRACT: We consider both local and global theta correspondences for GSp(4) and GSO(4,2). Because of the accidental isomorphism PGSO(4,2) similar or equal to PGU(2,2), these correspondences give rise to those between GSp(4) and GU(2,2) for representations with trivial central characters. In the global case, using this relation, we characterize representations with trivial central character, which have Shalika period on GU(2, 2) by theta correspondences. Moreover, in the local case, we consider a similar relationship for irreducible admissible representations without an assumption on the central character.

    ABSTRACT: Assume $\mathbf{G}$ is a connected reductive algebraic group defined over an algebraic closure $\mathbb{K} = \overline{\mathbb{F}}_p$ of the finite field of prime order $p>0$. Furthermore, assume that $F : \mathbf{G} \to \mathbf{G}$ is a Frobenius endomorphism of $\mathbf{G}$. In this article we give a formula for the value of any $F$-stable character sheaf of $\mathbf{G}$ at a unipotent element. This formula is expressed in terms of class functions of $\mathbf{G}^F$ which are supported on a single unipotent class of $\mathbf{G}$. In general these functions are not determined, however we give an expression for these functions under the assumption that $Z(\mathbf{G})$ is connected, $\mathbf{G}/Z(\mathbf{G})$ is simple and $p$ is a good prime for $\mathbf{G}$. In this case our formula is completely explicit.

    ABSTRACT: Let G(F_q) be the group of rational points of a split connected reductive group G defined over the finite field F_q. In this paper we show that the category of representations of G(F_q) which are finite direct sums of unipotent representations in a fixed two-sided cell is equivalent to the centre of a certain monoidal category of sheaves on the product of two copies of the flag manifold of G.
