Jordan blocks of cuspidal representations of symplectic groups

Corinne Blondel, Guy Henniart and Shaun Stevens

Vol. 12 (2018), No. 10, 2327–2386

Let G be a symplectic group over a nonarchimedean local field of characteristic zero and odd residual characteristic. Given an irreducible cuspidal representation of G, we determine its Langlands parameter (equivalently, its Jordan blocks in the language of Mœglin) in terms of the local data from which the representation is explicitly constructed, up to a possible unramified twist in each block of the parameter. We deduce a ramification theorem for G, giving a bijection between the set of endoparameters for G and the set of restrictions to wild inertia of discrete Langlands parameters for G, compatible with the local Langlands correspondence. The main tool consists in analyzing the Hecke algebra of a good cover, in the sense of Bushnell–Kutzko, for parabolic induction from a cuspidal representation of G × GLn, seen as a maximal Levi subgroup of a bigger symplectic group, in order to determine reducibility points; a criterion of Mœglin then relates this to Langlands parameters.
