Remarks on the arithmetic fundamental lemma

Chao Li and Yihang Zhu

Vol. 11 (2017), No. 10, 2425–2445

W. Zhang’s arithmetic fundamental lemma (AFL) is a conjectural identity between the derivative of an orbital integral on a symmetric space with an arithmetic intersection number on a unitary Rapoport–Zink space. In the minuscule case, Rapoport, Terstiege and Zhang have verified the AFL conjecture via explicit evaluation of both sides of the identity. We present a simpler way for evaluating the arithmetic intersection number, thereby providing a new proof of the AFL conjecture in the minuscule case.
