Abstract: The Bernstein center of a reductive p-adic group is the algebra of conjugation invariant distributions on the group which are essentially compact, i.e., invariant distributions whose convolution against a locally constant compactly supported function is again locally constant complactly supported. In the case of , we show that certain combinations of orbital integrals belong to the Bernstein center and reveal a geometric reason for this phenomenon.
