We study whether the property of being cohomological is preserved under Langlands functoriality for the transfer of tempered representations from real classical Lie groups to an appropriate general linear group.


Cohomological representations Langlands functoriality 



We thank Dipendra Prasad for his interest in the results of this project, and for helpful tutorials on Langlands parameters. We also thank the referee for a very careful reading and helpful comments.
