|Time/Room:||11:00am - 12:00pm/S-101|
It is well known that representations of open compact subgroups (called types) play a fundamental role in studying representations of $p$-adic groups. We give an overview of the theory (after Bernstein, Moy-Prasad, Bushnell-Kutzko) in connection with harmonic analysis emphasizing the role of types.
