Course/Module description:
"Topics in representation theory of p-adic groups"

Abstract: Bernstein center is a categorical analog of the center of an algebra, and plays a central role in the representation theory of p-adic groups. The goal of my course to cover different classical and more recent topics, related to Bernstein center.

Prerequisites: I will assume very basic theory of representation of p-adic groups. Roughly speaking, I am going to assume the material, covered in the course 80960 "Representation theory of p-adic groups" by Jasmin Matz in the first semester.

Tentative topics:

1) Classical theory (see Bernstein notes on "Representations of p-adic groups")

2) Classical paper "Trace Paley-Wiener theorem for reductive p-adic groups, by J. Bernstein, P. Deligne and D. Kazhdan

3) More geometric proof of second adjointness ("Geometry of second adjointness for p-adic groups", Roman Bezrukavnikov, David Kazhdan, arXiv:1407.8519)

4) Recent paper "Bernstein components via Bernstein center", by Alexander Braverman, David Kazhdan, Roman Bezrukavnikov, arXiv:1512.08637.
