Abstract: The fundamental lemma is a conjectural identity between the orbital integrals on two reductive groups. The fundamental lemma is required for the stabilization of the trace formula and for various applications to automorphic forms. This paper proves the fundamental lemma for the group $Sp(4)$ and its endoscopic groups.
