By A. Borel, N. Wallach

The ebook by means of Borel and Wallach is a vintage therapy of using cohomology in illustration thought, relatively within the atmosphere of automorphic kinds and discrete subgroups. The authors commence with basic fabric, masking Lie algebra cohomology, in addition to non-stop and differentiable cohomology. a lot of the equipment is designed for the examine of the cohomology of in the neighborhood symmetric areas, learned as double coset areas, the place the quotient is through a maximal compact subgroup and via a discrete subgroup. Such areas are important to functions to quantity idea and the learn of automorphic kinds. The authors provide a cautious presentation of relative Lie algebra cohomology of admissible and of unitary -modules. As a part of the final improvement, the Langlands type of irreducible admissible representations is given. Computations of vital examples are one other necessary a part of the ebook. within the 20 years among the 1st and moment variants of this paintings, there has been tremendous development within the use of homological algebra to build admissible representations and within the learn of mathematics teams. the second one version is a corrected and multiplied model of the unique, which was once a big catalyst within the development of the sector. along with the elemental fabric on cohomology and discrete subgroups found in the 1st version, this variation additionally includes expositions of a few of an important advancements of the 2 intervening a long time

Example text

Moreover, for any finite Galois extension L/k, let XL = Gal(L/k), and for any L/k, L /k such that L ⊂ L , let πL,L be the group morphism defined by πL,L : Gal(L /k) −→ Gal(L/k) σ −→ σ|L . We obtain in this way a projective system of groups. 18. Let Ω/k be a Galois extension. Then we have an isomorphism of topological groups Gal(Ω/k) lim ←−Gal(L/k), L where L/k runs over all finite Galois subextensions of Ω/k. Proof. Let us consider the map Θ: Gal(Ω/k) −→ lim ←−Gal(L/k) L σ −→ (σ|L )L . This is clearly an abstract group morphism.

6. Let A, B, C be Γ-sets, and let A , B , C be Γ -sets. Assume that we have a commutative diagram with exact rows 1 /A 1  /A /B f h1  /B f /C g h2  /C g /1 h3 /1 satisfying the conditions explained at the beginning of the section. Let us denote by δ 0 and δ 0 the respective connecting maps. If ϕ : Γ −→ Γ is compatible with h1 , h2 and h3 , the diagram CΓ  C δ0 h3∗ Γ / H 1 (Γ, A) h1∗ δ 0  / H 1 (Γ , A ) is commutative. Proof. Let c ∈ C Γ , and let b ∈ B be any preimage of c under g. The cohomology class δ 0 (c) is represented by the cocycle α defined by the relations f (ασ ) = b−1 σ·b for all σ ∈ Γ.

Let K and K be two fields, let L/K be a field extension, and let ι : K −→ K be a ring morphism. Finally, let α ∈ L. For every extension ϕ : L −→ Kalg of ι, ϕ(α) is a root of ι(μα,K ). Proof. Write μα,K = X n + an−1 X n−1 + . . + a0 . Since ϕ is an extension of ι, we have ι(μα,K ) = X n + ϕ(an−1 )X n−1 + . . + ϕ(a0 ). Since ϕ is a ring morphism, we then get ι(μα,K )(ϕ(α)) = ϕ(μα,K (α)) = ϕ(0) = 0. Hence ϕ(α) is a root of ι(μα,K ) as claimed. 18. Let K, K be two fields, let ι : K −→ K be a ring morphism, and let α ∈ Kalg .
