Representations of p-adic groups
Original Notes on admissible representations of p-adic groups.
These are the original notes written at the IAS
in June, 1974, with a major correction
suggested a couple of years later by Cartier
and a few other minor ones.
They were subsequently put into TEX
under Paul Sally's direction at the University of Chicago.
They contain a number of small mathematical errors.
The most egregious is the formulation of the Bruhat-Tits KTK reduction.

L2 cohomology of arithmetic

From a conference on representations of real reductive groups in Park City, Utah.
L2 cohomology of arithmetic quotients.
From a conference on singularities at Tsukuba University.
These two papers represent work done jointly with Armand Borel
on Zucker's conjecture that was never published, since shortly afterwards
complete proofs of the conjecture appeared.
Nonetheless, the techniques might someday be of interest.
The point is to show how the calculation of local L2 cohomology can be represented as (g,K)
cohomology of locally L2 automorphic forms on link groups, for groups of rational rank one and two.
This is an analogue of the conjecture of Borel about ordinary cohomology that was proved
for SL(2) in the Hodge theory paper, and then for all arithmetic groups by Jens Franke.

There are some silly errors in this. The exponent of π in
Riemann's function is -s/2 not s/2, and the residue
of Es is 1/2ξ(2), making the volume
of the quotient SL(2,Z)\H equal to π/3.

This is a minor revision of
a paper originally published in an A.M.S. volume dedicated to Goro Shimura.
The revisions correct a few minor typographical errors and (I hope) improve
(from a conference in Tokyo on class field theory).
There are many typographical errors in the publishd
version, and a few misstatements in this as well.
