Automorphic Representation of Unitary Groups in Three Variables

The aim of this publication is to strengthen the good hint formulation for unitary teams in 3 variables. The reliable hint formulation is then utilized to acquire a category of automorphic representations. This paintings represents the 1st case during which the sturdy hint formulation has been labored out past the case of SL (2) and comparable teams.

Let K be a field of characteristic p, f E K[X] a polynomial such that there exists an integer e 2: 1, and a polynomial g E K[X] for which J(X) = g(XP'). Then every root off has multiplicity at least pe. 23. Show that if K is any infinite field and f E K[X 1 , ... , Xn], there exist infinitely many n-tuples x = (xi, ... , Xn) E Kn such that j(x1, .. , Xn) i 0. Hint: Proceed by recurrence on n. 28 2.

If t is a separable element over K and if f is its minimal polynomial, then discrLIK(t) = discr(f). It is important to compute the discriminant of an irreducible polynomial = aoXn + a1Xn-l +···+an without knowing a priori its roots. If Pk = x~ + · · · + x~ (where x 1, ... , Xn are the roots of f) fork= 0, 1, 2, ... , then Po = n, P1 = -adao, and P2, p3, ... may be computed recursively (without computing the roots) by the well-known Newton formulas (see Exercise 17). Then f discr(f) = a~n- 2 Po P1 P1 P2 Pn-1 Pn Pn-1 Pn P2n-2 In some cases, the computation of the above determinant is rather awkward.

Since G is a finite group, there exist integers ei, ... 1) 1. 1). 2) 1 i=I be any other relation, with J; E Z, not all equal to 0. 1) we obtain fi. XIr II x{'-qe; k 1, i=2 which is contrary to the definition of b. Similarly, b = ei divides all exponents e;. In fact, if e; = q;b + r; with 0 < r; < b, we consider the system of generators {xix{', x 2 , ... 3) with 0 < r; < b, which is a contradiction. Now, let e; = qib and YI = XIX~2 • • • x'fc", so {YI, x2, ... , xk} is also a system of generators of G and the element YI has order b = ei.
