Number Theory Seminar

Title: The distinction problem for symmetric spaces
Speaker: Dipendra Prasad (IIT Bombay)
Date: 12 October 2022
Time: 2 pm
Venue: LH 1

If $\theta$ is an involution on a group $G$ with fixed points $H$, it is a question of considerable interest to classify irreducible representations of $G$ which carry an $H$-invariant linear form. We will discuss some cases of this question paying attention to finite dimensional representation of compact groups where it is called the Cartan-Helgason theorem.
