Torsion pairs in the representation theory of
Abstract: Given a p-adic reductive group G and its
(pro-p) Iwahori-Hecke algebra H, we are interested
in the link between the category of representations
of G and the category of H-modules. When the field
of coefficients has characteristic zero, this link
is well understood by work of Bernstein and Borel.
When the field has characteristic p, this link is
much more involved and is still quite mysterious. We
develop an approach to this question by defining a
canonical torsion pair in the category of H-modules.
This is joint work with Peter Schneider.

Title: Cuspidal Eisenstein Series on Loop Groups over Function Fields
I will explain the construction of cuspidal
Eisenstein series on loop groups over function
fields starting from both ‘positive’ and ‘negative’
maximal parabolics. The positive variant results in
an entire function, whereas the negative one— which
was first introduced by A. Braverman and D. Kazhdan—
produces a (conjecturally) meromorphic object.
A functional equation can also be proven that
relates the positive and negative series and in
which L-functions of cusp forms (on finite
dimensional groups) appear.
