Continuous cohomology, discrete subgroups, and by A. Borel, N. Wallach

By A. Borel, N. Wallach

The publication by way of Borel and Wallach is a vintage remedy of using cohomology in illustration thought, fairly within the environment of automorphic types and discrete subgroups. The authors commence with common fabric, overlaying Lie algebra cohomology, in addition to non-stop and differentiable cohomology. a lot of the equipment is designed for the examine of the cohomology of in the neighborhood symmetric areas, learned as double coset areas, the place the quotient is by means of a maximal compact subgroup and via a discrete subgroup. Such areas are crucial to purposes to quantity thought and the learn of automorphic kinds. The authors supply a cautious presentation of relative Lie algebra cohomology of admissible and of unitary -modules. As a part of the final improvement, the Langlands category of irreducible admissible representations is given. Computations of vital examples are one other important a part of the publication. within the 20 years among the 1st and moment variations of this paintings, there has been substantial growth within the use of homological algebra to build admissible representations and within the learn of mathematics teams. the second one variation is a corrected and improved model of the unique, which was once an immense catalyst within the development of the sphere. in addition to the basic fabric on cohomology and discrete subgroups found in the 1st version, this variation additionally comprises expositions of a few of crucial advancements of the 2 intervening many years.

Cohomological invariants: exceptional groups and spin groups

This quantity issues invariants of G-torsors with values in mod p Galois cohomology - within the experience of Serre's lectures within the e-book Cohomological invariants in Galois cohomology - for varied basic 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 kinds are one of many significant subject matters of analytic quantity idea. in reality, they take a seat on the confluence of study, algebra, geometry, and quantity conception. during this booklet, Henryk Iwaniec once more monitors his penetrating perception, robust analytic recommendations, and lucid writing sort. the 1st variation of this quantity was once an underground vintage, either as a textbook and as a revered resource for effects, rules, and references.
