This survey discusses ideas, results and conjectures concerning the metaplectic representation.
§1 Theta functions; relation between classical and adelic formulation,
§2 Metaplectic group, metaplectic representation; relation with theta functions.
§3 Dual reductive pairs and metaplectic representation.
§4 The conjectures of Howe. For a dual reductive pair \((U_1,U_2)\) one may form the inverse images \((\tilde{U}_1)\) and \((\tilde{U}_2)\) in the metaplectic group. One studies how the metaplectic representation associates representations of \((\tilde{U}_2)\) to representations of \((\tilde{U}_1)\). In the local case it is conjectured that irreducibility is conserved in some sense. The local cases may be combined to give a global correspondence between representations of adele groups, which is conjectured to conserve the property of being automorphic.
§5 Results of Kudla, in the local non-archimedean case, which shows that the correspondence is compatible with parabolic induction.
§6 Results of Howe. Proof of the local conjecture in some cases.
