Motivic measure and p-adic groups

What is the natural way to compute integrals over a p-adic field? How to think of the classical p-adic measure in a p-independent way? The theory of arithmetic motivic integration provides a new way of thinking of p-adic integrals and links them with algebraic geometry. I will talk about this theory, and some examples when it can be applied to get information about the objects that appear in the representation theory of p-adic groups.

Dr. Gordon is a University Faculty Award candidate. You are encouraged to attend the colloquium.

Refreshments will be served at 3:45 p.m. (MATX 1115, Math Lounge).
