Combining presentation of new results with in-depth surveys of recent work, this book focuses on representation theory and harmonic analysis on real and \(p\)-adic groups. The papers are based on lectures presented at a conference dedicated to the memory of Larry Corwin and held at Rutgers University in February 1993. The book presents a survey of harmonic analysis on nilpotent homogeneous spaces, results on multiplicity formulas for induced representations, new methods for constructing unitary representations of real reductive groups, and a unified treatment of trace Paley-Wiener theorems for real and \(p\)-adic reductive groups. In the representation theory of the general linear group over \(p\)-adic fields, the book provides a description of Corwin's contributions, a survey of the role of Hecke algebras, and a presentation of the theory of simple types. Other types of reductive \(p\)-adic groups are also discussed. Among the other topics included are the representation theory of discrete rational nilpotent groups, skew-fields associated to quadratic algebras, and finite models for percolation. A timely publication featuring contributions by some of the top researchers in the field, this book offers a perspective not often found in conference proceedings.


Graduate students and researchers in the area of representations and harmonic analysis on real and \(p\)-adic Lie groups.
