title = "Homological multiplicities in representation theory of p-adic groups",

abstract = "For a spherical variety X of a reductive group G over a non-archimedean local field F, and for a smooth representation π of G we study homological multiplicities dimExtG∗(S(X),π). Based on Bernstein{\textquoteright}s decomposition of the category of smooth representations of G, we introduce a sheaf that measures these multiplicities. We show that these multiplicities are finite whenever the usual mutliplicities dimHomG(S(X),π)are finite. The latter are known to be finite for symmetric varieties and for many other spherical varieties and conjectured to be finite for all spherical varieties. Furthermore, we show that the Euler–Poincar{\'e} characteristic is constant in families parabolically induced from finite length representations of a Levi subgroup M< G. In the case when M= G we compute these multiplicities more explicitly.",
