About the Authors
  • This book is, on the one hand, a pedagogical introduction to the formalism of slopes, of semi-stability and of related concepts in the simplest possible context. It is therefore accessible to any graduate student with a basic knowledge in algebraic geometry and algebraic groups. On the other hand, the book also provides a thorough introduction to the basics of period domains, as they appear in the geometric approach to local Langlands correspondences and in the recent conjectural p-adic local Langlands program. The authors provide numerous worked examples and establish many connections to topics in the general area of algebraic groups over finite and local fields. In addition, the end of each section includes remarks on open questions, historical context and references to the literature.

    • Contains complete proofs of the basics of the theory
    • Brings together tools from various branches of algebra and geometry
    • Provides a basis for future research

    "This book gives a very detailed and pedagogical introduction to the theory of period domains over finite and p-adic fields. It should prove indispensable for every non-expert or graduate student who wants to understand current research in arithmetic geometry or number theory using this theory."
    Volker J. Heiermann, Mathematical Reviews
