# unramified base change in characteristic p > 0?

Hi,

Suppose that $E/F$ is a unramified extension of local fields of characteristic zero. Let $G = GL_n$. Then it is well-known (due to Clozel?) that base change of tempered representations from $G(F)$ to $G(E)$ holds.

Question: does the same result hold in the case of characteristic $p > 0$?

Thanks!

EDIT: As Olivier says, this actually seems to follow immediately from LLC for function fields. Thanks!

Doesn't that follow from the proof of the local Langlands correspondence for function fields (by Laumon, Rappoport and Stuhler)? –  Olivier Feb 24 '13 at 13:40

The full local Langlands correspondence is a theorem of G.Laumon, M.Rappoport and U.Stuhler in $\mathcal D$-elliptic sheaves and the Langlands correspondence (Invent. Math. 113).
The result for $n=2$ is due to Deligne.
