TECHNION
DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS
ALGEBRA SEMINAR
SPEAKER: Dima Gourevitch and Rami Aizenbud, Weizmann Institute
TOPIC: Gelfand pairs and invariant distributions
DATE: Thursday, August 14, 2008
TIME: 12:30--14:30
PLACE: AMADO 919
ABSTRACT:
In the first part of the lecture we will introduce the notion of Gelfand
pair and its connection to invariant distributions. Then we will list some
recent results on Gelfand pairs and invariant distributions and discuss the
tools used to achieve those results.
In the second part of the lecture we will give a sketch of the proof that
the pair (GL(n+1,F),GL(n,F)) is a strong Gelfand pair for
any non-archimedean field F of characteristic 0. If we will have time, we
will also say some words about the proof that (O(V+F), O(V)) is a strong
Gelfand pair. This is a joint work with S. Rallis and G. Schiffmann.
