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.
