### Strictly contracting elements in the center of a Levi subgroup

Let $G$ be a connected reductive group over a non archimedean local field $k$.
Let $P \subset G$ be a parabolic subgroup with Levi decomposition $P=MN$, $Z_M \subset L$ be the center of $M$ and $S_M ...

### Density of characters

Did Harish-Chandra prove that characters of irreducible representations of a $p$-adic reductive group $G$ span a dense subspace of the space of conjugation-invariant distributions on $G$? What is the ...

### Centralizer of a maximal split torus

Can you help me find a reference for the following fact?
"If $G$ is a quasi-split $p$-adic group and $T$ is a maximal split torus in $G$, then the centralizer of $T$ is a maximal torus in $G$."
Or ...

### Decomposition of k-split tori of p-adic reductive groups

Let $G$ be a reductive group over a $p$-adic field $k$, $S \subset G$ a maximal $k$-split torus, $\Phi(G,S)$ the relative root system and $\Delta$ a basis of $\Phi$.
There is a group homomorphism :

### Upper bound on order of finite subgroups of GL_n(Z_p)?

Fix a prime $p$ and integer $n>1$, along with the ring $R$ of integers in a finite extension of the field $\mathbb{Q}_p$ (for example $R = \mathbb{Z}_p$).
Is there an upper bound $C(n,p)$ on ...

### Reference request - Jacquet module and asymptotic of matrix coefficients

Hello,
I would like to know some nice references about the relation between asymptotics of matrix coefficients of representations of reductive groups over local fields, and the pairing between the ...
