Tame multiplicity and conductor for local Galois representations

Colin J. Bushnell and Guy Henniart

Vol. 2 (2020), No. 2, 337–357

Let F be a non-Archimedean locally compact field of residual characteristic p. Let σ be an irreducible smooth representation of the absolute Weil group WF of F and sw(σ) the Swan exponent of σ. Assume sw(σ) 1. Let F be the inertia subgroup of WF and PF the wild inertia subgroup. There is an essentially unique, finite, cyclic group Σ, of order prime to p, such that σ(F) = Σσ(PF). In response to a query of Mark Reeder, we show that the multiplicity in σ of any character of Σ is bounded by sw(σ).
