The characters of supercuspidal representations as weighted orbital integrals

  • James Arthur


Weighted orbital integrals are the terms which occur on the geometric side of the trace formula. We shall investigate these distributions on ap-adic group. We shall evaluate the weighted orbital integral of a supercuspidal matrix coefficient as a multiple of the corresponding character.
