Transfer and Descent: Some Recent Results

Part of the Progress in Mathematics book series (PM, volume 101)


A basic tool for studying the transfer of representations is the dual transfer of orbital integrals. In this paper we report on some recent results for orbital integrals and, in particular, on a descent theorem [LS3].
