We study zeta functions enumerating finite-dimensional irreducible complex linear representations of compact p-adic analytic and of arithmetic groups. Using methods from p-adic integration, we show that the zeta functions associated to certain p-adic analytic pro-p groups satisfy functional equations. We prove a conjecture of Larsen and Lubotzky regarding the abscissa of convergence of arithmetic groups of type A2 defined over number fields, assuming a conjecture of Serre on lattices in semisimple groups of rank greater than 1.
