The irreducible orthogonal and symplectic Galois representations of a p- adic field. (The tame case). (English) Zbl 0546.12009
Let F be a finite extension of \({\mathbb{Q}}_ p\) and n a positive number prime to p. Then all irrreducible n-dimensional Galois representations of F are parameterized by characters of the multiplicative groups of degree n extensions of F. An \(\epsilon\) -factor preserving correspondence with admissible irreducible cuspidal representations of GL(n,F) was given by the author in his thesis. This short note determines which irreducible n- dimensional Galois representations of F have real-valued character and which are orthogonal or symplectic representations. Given the above parametrization, the proof is a pleasant exercise with Frobenius reciprocity and local class field theory.
