On the character of Weils representation Academic Article uri icon


  • The importance of certain representations of symplectic groups, usually called Weil representations, for the general problem of finding representations of certain group extensions is made explicit. Some properties of the character of Weils representation for a finite symplectic group are given and discussed, again in the context of finding representations of group extensions. As a by-product, the structure of anisotropic tori in symplectic groups is given.
