  • A Brief Description of Work so far

    Branching Laws for representations of Real and p-adic groups: Many problems in representation theory involve understanding how a representation of a group decomposes when restricted to a subgroup. Situations which involve multiplicity one phenomenon in which either the trivial representation, or some other representation of the subgroup appears with multiplicity at most one is specially useful. To cite a few examples, the theory of spherical functions and Whittaker models depends on such a multiplicity one phenomenon. The Clebsch-Gordon theorem about tensor product of representations of SU(2) has been very useful both in Physics and Mathematics. Many of my initial papers have been about finding such multiplicity one situations for infinite dimensional representations of real and $p$-adic groups. The results are expressed in terms of the arithmetic information which goes in parameterising representations, the so called Langlands parameters. In particular, the Clebsch-Gordon theorem was generalised by me for infinite dimensional representations of real and $p$-adic GL(2). Several papers, some written in collaboration with B.H.Gross, point out to the importance of the so called epsilon factors in these branching laws. The papers [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [9], [11], [14] belong to this theme. These works have implication for the global theory of automorphic forms. There are many parallels between global period integrals, expressed in many situations as special value of $L$-functions, and local branching laws expressed in terms of epsilon factors. In paper [35] this theme has been carried out, giving a global proof of the decomposition of tensor product of two representations of GL(2) in terms of epsilon factors. In paper [36] written with Schulze-Pillot, we generalise Jacquet's conjecture to general cubic algebras, and deduce the local analogue. This paper also proves a very general globalisation theorem of local representations.
    The paper [15] studies the question of when a representation of $G(K)$ has a $G(k)$-invariant vector for $K$ a quadratic extension of $k$ for $k$ either a finite or a $p$-adic field. In the $p$-adic case, this was done only for division algebras in [15]. I have used the methods of this paper to prove a conjecture of Jacquet about distinguished representations of $GL_n$ and $U_n$ in the case when $K$ is a unramified quadratic extension of $k$ in [25].
    Lusztig followed up the theme of [15] in his paper in Representation Theory , vol.4, (2000).
    I have written a paper [33] with Jeff. Adler in which we prove several multiplicity 1 theorems; in particular we show that an irreducible representation of $GSp(2n)$ when restricted to $Sp(2n)$ decomposes with mutiplicity 1 for $p$-adic fields.

    Representations of division algebras and of Galois groups of local fields: Generalising local class field theory, Langlands has conjectured a correspondence between irreducible representations of $GL(n)$ or of a division algebra of index $n$ to $n$ dimensional representations of the Galois group of the local field. This correspondence has recently been established by Harris, Taylor and Henniart. The correspondence preserves self-dual representations. Self-dual representations are of two kinds: symplectic and orthogonal. The question is: how does the Langlands correspondence behave on these two kinds of self-dual representations. Based on considerations of Poincare duality on the middle dimensional cohomology of a certain rigid analytic space, Dinakar Ramakrishnan and I conjecture that a representation of division algebra is orthogonal if and only if the associated representation of the Galois group is symplectic. The conjecture was made in [10]. The paper [14] was also motivated by its consideration. In the paper [37] with Ramakrishnan we show how this conjecture is a consequence of `functoriality', and since the functorial lift between classical groups and $GL(n)$ is now known in many cases, we are able to prove the conjecture in [37] for those cases when the parameter is symplectic.

    Self-dual representations of finite and $p$-adic groups : For a compact connected Lie group it is a theorem due to Malcev that an irreducible, self-dual representation carries an invariant symmetic or skew-symmetric bilinear form depending on the action of a certain element in the center of the group. We have generalised this result to finite groups of Lie type in [13] and to $p$-adic groups in [17], providing an answer to a question raised by Serre. These results are, however, proved only for generic representations and a condition on the group: the group contains an element which operates by $-1$ on all simple roots. The group $SL(n)$ for $n \cong 2 \bmod 4$ does not have such an element for a finite field ${\Bbb F}_q$ for $q \cong 3 \bmod 4$, and for such group there are generic self-dual representations on which the central element acts trivially, although the representation is symplectic, belying a belief at that point. A. Turull later gave much more complete results about Schur index in general for $SL(n)$.

    Kirillov/Whittaker models : In the work [20] done with A. Raghuram, we develop Kirillov theory for irreducible admissible representations of $GL_2(D)$ where $D$ is a division algebra over a non-Archimedean local field. This work is in close analogy with the work of Jacquet-Langlands done in the case when $D$ is a field, and realises any irreducible admissible representation of $GL_2(D)$ on a space of functions of $D^*$ with values in what may be called the space of degenerate Whittaker models which is the largest quotient of the representation on which the unipotent radical of the minimal parabolic which is isomorphic to $D$ acts via a non-trivial character of $D$. Paper [22] studies this space of degenerate Whittaker models for finite fields obtaining a rather pretty result about the space of degenerate Whittaker model for a cuspidal representation of $GL_{2n}({\Bbb F})$ with respect to the $(n,n)$ parabolic with unipotent radical $M_n({\Bbb F})$. In paper [40] in the conference proceedings of a conference at the Tata Institute on Automorphic forms, I elaborate on a conjecture with B. Gross which gives a very precise structure for the space of degenerate Whittaker models on $GL_2(D)$ when $D$ is a quaternion division algebra. There is also a proposal in this paper to interpret triple product epsilon factors (for $GL(2)$) in terms of intertwining operators.

    Weil Representations: Generalising the classical construction of theta functions, Weil representations provide one of the few general methods of constructing representations of groups over real and $p$-adic groups, as well as automorphic forms. The relation of this construction of representations to the Langlands parametrisation is still not fully understood. I have written two papers dealing with this question in which I refine some conjectures of Jeff Adams on the Langlands parameters of representations obtained via the Weil construction, thus making rather precise conjectures about the behaviour of the theta correspondence for groups of similar size. I have also done some work on the $K$-type of the Weil representation, and also on the character formula for the Weil representation. Papers [7], [19] as well as the expository paper [40] containing some new results too, belong to this theme.

    Modular forms: There is a well known theorem of Deligne about estimates on the Fourier coefficients of modular forms. In the paper [12] with C. Khare, we study whether the converse is true, i.e. if given finitely many algebraic integers satisfying Deligne bounds, there exists an eigenform of Hecke operators with these algebraic integers as Fourier coefficients. One simple case of this problem is solved by an application of Wiles's theorem about the Shimura-Taniyama conjecture.

    Representations of finite groups of Lie type: I have worked on some aspects of representation theory of finite groups of Lie type with my student Nilabh Sanat, and we have written a paper [27] together. This paper decomposes an irreducible cuspidal representation of a classical group restricted to its maximal unipotent subgroup as an alternating sum of certain explicit unipotent representations.

    Other works : I have a short note [6] in which I give a proof of the analogue of Bezout's theorem for abelian varieties: any two subvarieties of complementary dimensions in a simple abelian variety intersect. When the paper was written, I did not know that the theorem was due to W. Barth, but the proof presented in [6] was different anyway.
    The short note [26] to the paper of Schneider and Teitelbaum introduces the concept of locally algebraic representations, and suggestes an analogue of the Harish-Chandra sub-quotient theorem for $p$-adic representations of $p$-adic groups.
    In paper [18] with Kumar Murty, we parametrise Tate cycles on products of two Hilbert modular surfaces in terms of Hilbert modular forms, including the precise information about the field of rationality.
    L. Merel has proved an important theorem stating that the order of torsion on elliptic curves over a number field are bounded independent of the elliptic curve and the field, and depends only on the degree of the field. However, there are still no good bounds. In an attempt to see what might be the best bound, in a note with Yogananda [24], we estimate the bounds on torsion on CM elliptic curves.
    I have made an analogue of a conjecture of Mazur on the density of rational points in the Euclidean topology on an Abelian variety to certain tori (isomorphic to $({\Bbb S}^1)^n$ but non-algebraic!), and proved it using the Schanuel conjecture in [29].
    In a paper with C. Khare [30] we prove that an abstract homomorphism between the Mordell-Weil group of abelian varieties over a number field which respects reduction mod $p$, in fact arises from homomorphism of abelian varieties.
    The paper [28] written with CS Rajan is a re-look at Sunada's theorem about isospectral Riemannian manifolds where we deduce it as a consequence of a simple lemma in group theory. In this paper we also conjecture, and verify in several cases, that the Jacobians of two Riemann surfaces with the same spectrum for Laplacian are isogenous (after an extension of the base field), and propose this as an Archimedean analogue of Tate's conjecture.
    I have written some survey papers, of which [39], [40] might have some results which may not be found elsewhere.
