The second gathering of the Simons Symposium on the Trace Formula paved the way for new developments through lectures, participant-led discussions and exploration of open problems on the following topics:

  • Geometric side of the Arthur-Selberg and relative trace formulas: stabilization, fundamental lemmas, global coefficients, analytic aspects
  • Residual representations, nilpotent orbits, geometry and representation theory of p-adic groups
  • Automorphic sheaves on Bun_G, affine Grassmannian
  • Combinatorics of truncation, bounds for the non-tempered spectrum
