Cohomological invariants: exceptional groups and spin groups

This quantity issues invariants of G-torsors with values in mod p Galois cohomology - within the feel of Serre's lectures within the booklet Cohomological invariants in Galois cohomology - for numerous uncomplicated algebraic teams G and primes p. the writer determines the invariants for the outstanding teams F4 mod three, easily hooked up E6 mod three, E7 mod three, and E8 mod five.

Spectral methods of automorphic forms

Automorphic varieties are one of many primary issues of analytic quantity idea. in reality, they sit down on the confluence of research, algebra, geometry, and quantity conception. during this e-book, Henryk Iwaniec once more monitors his penetrating perception, robust analytic options, and lucid writing type. the 1st version of this quantity was once an underground vintage, either as a textbook and as a revered resource for effects, principles, and references.

32. The sets H n (Γ/U, AU ) together with the maps inf U,U form a directed system of pointed sets (resp. of groups if A is abelian). Moreover, we have fU = fU ◦ inf U,U . We now come to the main result of this section. 33. Let Γ be a proﬁnite group, and let A be a Γ-group. Then we have an isomorphism of pointed sets (resp. an isomorphism of groups if A is abelian) n U lim −→ H (Γ/U, A ) H n (Γ, A). U ∈N If [ξU ] ∈ H n (Γ/U, AU ), this isomorphism maps [ξU ]/∼ onto fU ([ξU ]). Proof. We ﬁrst prove that there exists a well-deﬁned map n U n f: − lim → H (Γ/U, A ) −→ H (Γ, A), U ∈N which sends the equivalence class of [ξU ] ∈ H n (Γ/U, AU ) onto fU ([ξU ]).

We would like to observe now that the map ϕ∗ depends on ϕ only up to conjugation. For, let ρ ∈ G and set ψ = Int(ρ) ◦ ϕ. Then ψ ∗ ([α]) is represented by the cocycle γ deﬁned by γ: Γn −→ A (σ1 , . . ,ρϕ(σn )ρ−1 . 21. Assume now that Γ also acts trivially on G, so that H 1 (Γ, G) is nothing but the set of conjugacy classes of continuous morphisms ϕ : Γ −→ G. The previous observations then imply that for each class [α] ∈ H n (G, A), we have a well-deﬁned map H 1 (Γ, G) −→ H n (Γ, A) [ϕ] −→ ϕ∗ ([α]).

5. There is a natural bijection of pointed sets between the orbit set C Γ /B Γ and ker(H 1 (Γ, A) −→ H 1 (Γ, B)). More precisely, the bijection sends the orbit of c ∈ C Γ onto δ 0 (c). Proof. 4, we have ker(H 1 (Γ, A) −→ H 1 (Γ, B)) = im(δ 0 ). Hence we have to construct a bijection between C Γ /B Γ and im(δ 0 ). Let c, c ∈ C Γ lying in the same orbit, that is c = β·c for some β ∈ B Γ . Then c = g(βb), for some preimage b ∈ B of c, and βb is a preimage of c . Since we have (βb)−1 σ·(βb) = b−1 β −1 (σ·β)(σ·b) = b−1 σ·b, it turns out that δ 0 (c ) = δ 0 (c).
