What ingredients are necessary to describe all maximal subgroups of the general analysis. finite group G? This paper is concerned with providing such an A good first reduction is to take into account the first isomorphism theorem, which tells us that the maximal subgroups containing a given normal subgroup N of G correspond, under the natural projection, to the maximal subgroups of the quotient group G/N. Let PZ = PQ denote the collection of maximal subgroups of G, and let e * be the subset of those ME?)z with Ker,(M) = 1, where Ker,(M) denotes the largest normal subgroup of G contained in M. Then the first isomorphism theorem allows us to identify +Z with the disjoint union UN,, ms,N. Actually, what we really want to parameterize are the conjugacy classes of maximal subgroups, but this too works well: If
Ramification of local fields with imperfect residue fields

We define two decreasing filtrations by ramification groups on the absolute Galois group of a complete discrete valuation field whose residue field may not be perfect. In the classical case where the residue field is perfect, we recover the classical upper numbering filtration. The definition uses rigid geometry and logstructures. We also establish some of their properties. 1
Quaternionic Distinguished Representations

Using a "relative trace formula", Jacquet and Lai [JL] carried out such comparisons in certain cases. To extend their results, ..."

this paper is to compare the notion of being GL(2; A )distinguished with the notion (defined below) of being distinguished with respect to another subgroup of GL(2; A E ). Using a "relative trace formula", Jacquet and Lai [JL] carried out such comparisons in certain cases. To extend their results, one could either develop an extensive theory of orbital integrals for the relative trace formula, as is done in [H3], or give a relative version of the DeligneKazhdan "simple trace formula," in which this theory simplifies. We adopt the latter approach. Another objective of this work is to consider such a comparison and a "relative trace" (or "biperiod summation") formula in the higher rank case. Distinguished representations were introduced in a similar context by Waldspurger [Wa], and in our context by Harder, Langlands and Rapoport [HLR] to study Tate's conjectures [T] on algebraic cycles in the case of Hilbert modular surfaces. Then Lai [L] \Gamma using the comparisons of distinguished representations in [JL]
Homology of affine Springer fibers in the unramified case

"... Assuming a certain “purity ” conjecture, we derive a formula for the (complex) cohomology groups of the affine Springer fiber corresponding to any unramified regular semisimple element. We use this calculation to present a complex analog of the fundamental lemma for function fields. We show that the ..."

Assuming a certain “purity ” conjecture, we derive a formula for the (complex) cohomology groups of the affine Springer fiber corresponding to any unramified regular semisimple element. We use this calculation to present a complex analog of the fundamental lemma for function fields. We show that the “kappa ” orbital integral that arises in the fundamental lemma is equal to the Lefschetz trace of the Frobenius acting

. Let A be a regular local ring and K its field of fractions. We denote by W the Witt group functor that classifies quadratic spaces. We say that purity holds for A if W(A) is the intersection of all W(Ap ) ae W(K), where p runs over the height one prime ideals of A. We prove that purity holds for every regular local ring containing a field of characteristic 6= 2. R ' ESUM ' E. Soit A un anneau local r'egulier et K son corps des fractions.

Abstract. Let E/K be an elliptic curve defined over a number field, and let p be a prime number such that E(K) has full ptorsion. We show that the order of the ppart of the ShafarevichTate group of E/L is unbounded as L varies over degree p extensions of K. The proof uses O’Neil’s periodindex obstruction. We deduce the result from the fact that, under the same hypotheses, there exist infinitely many elements of the WeilChâtelet group of E/K of period p and index p 2. 1.

We study the relationship between the period and the index of a principal homogeneous space over an abelian variety, obtaining results which, in particular, generalize work of Cassels and Lichtenbaum on curves of genus one. In addition, we show that the ptorsion in the ShafarevichTate group of a fixed abelian variety over a number field k grows arbitarily large when considered over field extensions l/k of bounded degree. Essential use is made of an abelian variety version of O’Neil’s periodindex obstruction.
