Automorphic representations of unitary groups in three variables. (English) Zbl 0724.11031
Annals of Mathematics Studies, 123. Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press. xii, 259 p. $ 60.00/hbk; $ 19.95/pbk (1990).
In the first ten chapters of this book the stabilization of Arthur’s trace formula is effectuated for the quasi-split U(3) and the comparison of ordinary and twisted trace formula is made. This enables the author to derive the following results on admissible resp. automorphic representations. 1) Locally: The partition of the set of irreducible admissible representations of U(3) into L-packets. The correspondence between L-packets of the endoscopic group U(2)\(\times U(1)\) and L-packets of U(3). Local base change for U(3). 2) Globally: Multiplicity one. A decription of the set of discrete global L-packets for U(3). Base change. A description of the discrete spectrum. Also considered are: The correspondence between global L-packets for U(3) and an inner form of U(3). The local Langlands correspondence.
The questions treated in this book are also treated by Y. Z. Flicker [J. Anal. Math. 50, 19-63 (1988; Zbl 0666.10019) and ibid. 52, 39-52 (1989; Zbl 0684.10027)].
