Motivic measure and padic groups
What is the natural way to compute integrals over a padic
field? How to think of the classical padic measure in a pindependent
way? The theory of arithmetic motivic integration provides a new way
of thinking of padic 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 padic 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).
