simple algebras with an involution of second kind. We study some local questions arising from the relative trace formula approach.
Abstract: The building blocks for complex representations of p-adic groups are called supercuspidal representations. I will survey what is known about the construction of supercuspidal representations, mention questions that remain mysterious until today, and explain some recent developments.
Boolean function analysis traditionally studies Boolean functions on the Boolean cube, using Fourier analysis on the group Z_2^n. Other domains of interest include the biased Boolean cube, other abelian groups, and Gaussian space. In all cases, the focus is on results which are independent of the dimension.
