# Spectral decomposition of parabolic induced for GL2(Zp)

Let $F$ be a number field and let $o$ be its ring of integers. Let $o_p$ resp. $F_p$ be the completion at a prime ideal $p$ in $o$. Let $B$ be the group of upper triangular matrices in $GL_2$. Let $\pi$ be a character of $B(F_p)$.

How can we describe the irreducible which occur in the restriction of the induced representations $$Res_{GL_2(o_p)} Ind_{B(F_p)}^{GL_2(F_p)} \pi = Ind_{B(o_p)}^{GL_2(o_p)} \pi = lim_r Ind_{B(o/p^r)}^{GL_2(o/p^r)} \pi.$$

Is there a nice description of the irreducibles?

This is done in :

Very roughly speaking, the idea is the following. When you restrict an irreducible smooth representation of ${\rm GL}(2)$ to ${\rm GL}(2,{\mathfrak o})$ you get two types of constituents. The first ones (infinitely many) are uninteresting : they appear in the restriction of many other representations. These representations are described by Casselman. The second ones are more interesting : if an ireeducible representation contains such constituents then it must belong to a single component of the Bernstein decomposition of the category. They are called typical. Actually the situation is a bit more complicate. I've made it simpler. For more detail, you may read the paper by Henniart :

Breuil, Christophe; Mézard, Ariane Multiplicités modulaires et représentations de ${\rm GL}_2({\bf Z}_p)$ et de ${\rm Gal}(\overline{\bf Q}_p/{\bf Q}_p)$ en $l=p$.

• The article of Casselman exactly provides what I need. Thanks for this nice reference. – Marc Palm Apr 2 '11 at 11:28
