AbstractWe prove that if $$G = \underline G (K)$$ is theK-rational points of aK-rank one semisimple group $$\underline G $$ over a non archimedean local fieldK, thenG has cocompact non-arithmetic lattices and if char(K)>0 also non-uniform ones. We also give a general structure theorem for lattices inG, from which we confirm Serre's conjecture that such arithmetic lattices do not satisfy the congruence subgroup property. 
Cusps of Lattices in Rank 1 Lie Groups over Local Fields
Let G be the group of rational points of a semisimple algebraic group of rank 1 over a non-Archimedean local field. We improve upon Lubotzky's analysis of graphs of groups describing the action ofExpand

Local Rigidity Of Uniform Lattices
We establish topological local rigidity for uniform lattices in compactly generated groups, extending the result of Weil from the realm of Lie groups. We generalize the classical local rigidityExpand
Arithmeticity of rank-1 lattices with dense commensurators in positive characteristic
Abstract G. Margulis showed that if  G is a semisimple Lie group and Γ ⊂ G is an irreducible lattice, which has an infinite index in its commensurator, and which satisfies one of the followingExpand
A logarithm law for automorphism groups of trees
Abstract.Let Γ be a geometrically finite tree lattice. We prove a Khintchine-Sullivan type theorem for the Hausdorff measure of the set of points at infinity of the tree that are well approximated byExpand
Counting arithmetic subgroups and subgroup growth of virtually free groups
Let K be a p-adic field, and let H = PSL2(K) endowed with the Haar measure determined by giving a maximal compact subgroup measure 1. Let ALH (x) denote the number of conjugacy classes of arithmeticExpand
The congruence kernel of an arithmetic lattice in a rank one algebraic group over a local field
Abstract Let k be a global field and let kυ be the completion of k with respect to υ a non-archimedean place of k. Let G be a connected, simply-connected algebraic group over k, which is absolutelyExpand
Finite Presentations of adelic groups, the congruence kernel and cohomology of finite simple groups
Let K be a non-archimedean local field and U a compact subgroup of GLn(K). Such U is a profinite group, actually it is virtually pro-p. If char(K) = 0, then U is finitely generated and even finitelyExpand

The tree lattice existence theorems
Let X be a locally finite tree, and let G=Aut(X). Then G is a locally compact group. In analogy with Lie groups, Bass and Lubotzky conjectured that G contains lattices, that is, discrete subgroupsExpand


Discrete subgroups of algebraic groups over local fields of positive characteristics
It is shown in this paper that ifG is the group ofk-points of a semisimple algebraic groupG over a local fieldk of positive characteristic such that all itsk-simple factors are ofk-rank 1 and Γ ⊂G isExpand
Trees and discrete subgroups of Lie groups over local fields
Let K be a locally compact field and G a simple AT-group, G = G(K). A discrete subgroup T of G is called a lattice if G/F carries a finite G-invariant measure. It is a uniform (or cocompact) latticeExpand
Existence of discrete cocompact subgroups of reductive groups over local fields.
Here H(L) is viewed s a topological group, for the topology associated to that of L, and Γ cocompact in H(L) means that the quotient space H(L)/F is compact. If L = R, C, the result was known [1] (InExpand

Variants of Kazhdan’s property for subgroups of semisimple groups
Some variants of Kazhdan’s property (T) for discrete groups are presented. It is shown that some groups (e.g. SLn (Q),n≧3) which do not have property (T) still have some of these weaker properties.Expand
Lattices of Minimal Covolume in SL 2 : A Nonarchimedean Analogue of Siegel's Theorem μ≥π/21
A classical result of Siegel [Si] asserts that if G = SL2(R) and ,u is its Haar measure (appropriately normalized) then mintj,u(F\G) = 7r/21 , where r runs over all the discrete subgroups of G. TheExpand
