Let be a non-Archimedean local field. Let be the Weil group of and the wild inertia subgroup of . Let be the set of equivalence classes of irreducible smooth representations of . Let denote the set of equivalence classes of irreducible cuspidal representations of and set . If , let be the cuspidal representation matched with by the Langlands Correspondence. If is totally wildly ramified, in that its restriction to is irreducible, we treat as known. From that starting point, we construct an explicit bijection , sending to . We compare this “na\i ve correspondence” with the Langlands correspondence and so achieve an effective description of the latter, modulo the totally wildly ramified case. A key tool is a novel operation of “internal twisting” of a suitable representation (of or ) by tame characters of a tamely ramified field extension of , canonically associated to . We show this operation is preserved by the Langlands correspondence.
