Abstract:
In this note we consider representations of the group GL(n,F), where F is the field of real or complex numbers or, more generally, an arbitrary local field, in the space of equivariant line bundles over Grassmannians over the same field F. We study reducibility and composition series of such representations. Similar results were obtained already in [HL99,Al12,Zel80], but we give a short uniform proof in the general case, using the tools from [AGS15a]. We also indicate some applications to cosine transforms in integral geometry.

Abstract:
We study generalized and degenerate Whittaker models for reductive groups over local fields of characteristic zero (archimedean or non-archimedean). Our main result is the construction of epimorphisms from the generalized Whittaker model corresponding to a nilpotent orbit to any degenerate Whittaker model corresponding to the same orbit, and to certain degenerate Whittaker models corresponding to bigger orbits. We also give choice-free definitions of generalized and degenerate Whittaker models. Finally, we explain how our methods imply analogous results for Whittaker-Fourier coefficients of automorphic representations. For $\mathrm{GL}_n(F)$ this implies that a smooth admissible representation $\pi$ has a generalized Whittaker model $\mathcal{W}_{\mathcal{O}}(\pi)$ corresponding to a nilpotent coadjoint orbit $\mathcal{O}$ if and only if $\mathcal{O}$ lies in the (closure of) the wave-front set $\mathrm{WF}(\pi)$. Previously this was only known to hold for $F$ non-archimedean and $\mathcal{O}$ maximal in $\mathrm{WF}(\pi)$, see [MW87]. We also express $\mathcal{W}_{\mathcal{O}}(\pi)$ as an iteration of a version of the Bernstein-Zelevinsky derivatives [BZ77,AGS15a]. This enables us to extend to $\mathrm{GL_n}(\mathbb{R})$ and $\mathrm{GL_n}(\mathbb{C})$ several further results from [MW87] on the dimension of $\mathcal{W}_{\mathcal{O}}(\pi)$ and on the exactness of the generalized Whittaker functor.

Abstract:
Motivated by string theory scattering amplitudes that are invariant under a discrete U-duality, we study Fourier coefficients of Eisenstein series on Kac-Moody groups. In particular, we analyse the Eisenstein series on $E_9(R)$, $E_{10}(R)$ and $E_{11}(R)$ corresponding to certain degenerate principal series at the values s=3/2 and s=5/2 that were studied in 1204.3043. We show that these Eisenstein series have very simple Fourier coefficients as expected for their role as supersymmetric contributions to the higher derivative couplings $R^4$ and $\partial^{4} R^4$ coming from 1/2-BPS and 1/4-BPS instantons, respectively. This suggests that there exist minimal and next-to-minimal unipotent automorphic representations of the associated Kac-Moody groups to which these special Eisenstein series are attached. We also provide complete explicit expressions for degenerate Whittaker vectors of minimal Eisenstein series on $E_6(R)$, $E_7(R)$ and $E_8(R)$ that have not appeared in the literature before.

Abstract:
We compute generalized Bernstein-Reznikov integrals associated with standard complex symplectic forms by studying Knapp-Stein intertwining operators between spherical degenerate principal series of complex symplectic groups.

Abstract:
A functional equation between the zeta distributions can be obtained from the theory of prehomogeneous vector spaces. We show that the functional equation can be extended from the Schwartz space to certain degenerate principal series.

Abstract:
We apply techniques introduced by Clerc, Kobayashi, Orsted and Pevzner to study the degenerate principal series of Sp(n,C). An explicit description of the K-types is provided and Knapp-Stein normalised operators are realised a symplectic Fourier transforms, and their K-spectrum explicitely computed. Reducibility phenomena are analysed in terms of K-types and eigenvalues of intertwining operators. We also construct a new model for these representations, in which Knapp-Stein intertwiners take an algebraic form.

Abstract:
The main purpose of this article is to supplement the authors' results on degenerate principal series representations of real symplectic groups with the analogous results for metaplectic groups. The basic theme, as in the previous case, is that their structures are anticipated by certain natural subrepresentations constructed from Howe correspondence. This supplement is necessary as these representations play a key role in understanding the basic structure of Howe correspondence (and its complications in the archimedean case), and their global counterparts play an equally essential part in the proof of Siegel-Weil formula and its generalizations (work of Kudla-Rallis). The full results in the metaplectic case also shed light on the seeming peculiarities, when the results in the symplectic case are viewed in their isolation.

Abstract:
The p-adic local Langlands correspondence for GL2(Qp) attaches to any 2-dimensional irreducible p-adic representation V of the absolute Galois groups of Qp an admissible unitary representation Pi(V) of GL2(Qp). The unitary principal series of GL2(Qp) are those Pi(V) corresponding to trianguline representations. In this article, for p>2, using the machinery of Colmez, we determine the space of locally analytic vectors for all non-exceptional unitary principal series of GL2(Qp) by proving a conjecture of Emerton.

Abstract:
We propose integral representations of the Whittaker functions for the classical Lie algebras sp(2l), so(2l) and so(2l+1). These integral representations generalize the integral representation of gl(l+1)-Whittaker functions first introduced by Givental. One of the salient features of the Givental representation is its recursive structure with respect to the rank of the Lie algebra gl(l+1). The proposed generalization of the Givental representation to the classical Lie algebras retains this property. It was shown elsewhere that the integral recursion operator for gl(l+1)-Whittaker function in the Givental representation coincides with a degeneration of the Baxter Q-operator for $\hat{gl(l+1)}$-Toda chains. We construct Q-operator for affine Lie algebras $\hat{so(2l)}$, $\hat{so(2l+1)}$ and a twisted form of $\hat{gl(2l)}$. We demonstrate that the relation between recursion integral operators of the generalized Givental representation and degenerate Q-operators remains valid for all classical Lie algebras.

Abstract:
Let F be a nonarchimedean locally compact field with residue characteristic p and G(F) the group of F-rational points of a connected reductive group. Following Schneider and Stuhler, one can realize, in a functorial way, any smooth complex finitely generated representation of G(F) as the 0-homology of a certain coefficient system on the semi-simple building of G(F). It is known that this method does not apply in general for smooth mod p representations of G(F), even when G= GL(2). However, we prove that a principal series representation of GL(n,F) over a field with arbitrary characteristic can be realized as the 0-homology of the corresponding coefficient system.
