The Geometry of Nontempered Characters
[ Abstract ]
In this talk, we will survey the results of Rossmann and Schmid-Vilonen on geometric formulas for nontempered characters of reductive groups, and we will mention an old result of Barbasch-Vogan on the special case A_q(lambda). We will discuss what nontempered character formulas would be necessary to generalize the main formula of the second talk, and we will make conjectures.
