The Bernstein Centre and the Bernstein Decomposition

Speaker: Geoff Vooys

In this talk we will introduce the Bernstein Decomposition and describe the Bernstein Centre of the category of smooth representations of the F-rational points of a p-adic group G. We will then describe how to realize the Bernstein Centre as a ring of sections of a variety, and, time permitting, use this to explain the parametrization of the Bernstein Decomposition.
