Orthogonal Root Numbers of Tempered Parameters

  title={Orthogonal Root Numbers of Tempered Parameters},
  author={David Schwein},
We show that an orthogonal root number of a tempered L-parameter φ decomposes as the product of two other numbers: the orthogonal root number of the principal parameter and the value on a certain involution of Langlands’s central character for φ. The formula resolves a conjecture of Gross and Reeder and computes root numbers of WeilDeligne representations arising in the work of Hiraga, Ichino, and Ikeda on the Plancherel measure.

Let $\pi$ be a generic irreducible representation of either a symplectic group or a split special even orthogonal group over a local field of characteristic zero. We prove that
Stiefel-Whitney classes of real representations of finite groups
Abstract We prove the existence and uniqueness of Stiefel-Whitney classes of real representations, subject to the Hirzebruch axioms, within the category of finite groups. We also give a method of
Orthogonal representations of Galois groups, Stiefel-Whitney classes and Hasse-Witt invariants.
What had started me on this paper was seeing a formula of Serre (in a letter to Martinet (cf. [Se3])) for the trace form of a separable field extension M/K of fmite degree and characteristic φ 2 (now

Abstract We establish various properties of the definition of cohomology of topological groups given by Grothendieck, Artin and Verdier in SGA4, including a Hochschild–Serre spectral sequence and a
Arithmetic invariants of discrete Langlands parameters
Let G be a reductive algebraic group over the local field k. The local Langlands conjecture predicts that the irreducible complex representations π of the locally compact group G(k) can be
Cohomology of the Weil group of a p-adic field
We establish duality and vanishing results for the cohomology of the Weil group of a p-adic field. Among them is a duality theorem for finitely generated modules, which implies Tate–Nakayama Duality.
On automorphic L-functions
PREFACE This article follows the format of five lectures that we gave on automorphic Lfunctions. The lectures were intended to be a brief introduction for number theorists to some of the main ideas
Comparison of sheaf cohomology and singular cohomology
A classic result states that on any locally contractible and paracompact topological space, singular cohomology and sheaf cohomology are isomorphic. A result by Ramanan claims that the
Notes on principal bundles and classifying spaces
Consider a real n-plane bundle ξ with Euclidean metric. Associated to ξ are a number of auxiliary bundles: disc bundle, sphere bundle, projective bundle, k-frame bundle, etc. Here “bundle” simply
The authors would like to thank Professor Gross for pointing out an error in Lemma 3.3 of [4]. Conjecture 1.4 of [4] does not hold for d(π) = d(π, μG/A,ψ) in the non-archimedean case. We need to
