Representation growth and representation zeta functions of groups


We give a short introduction to the subject of representation growth and representation zeta functions of groups, omitting all proofs. Our focus is on results which are relevant to the study of arithmetic groups in semisimple algebraic groups, such as the group S L n (Z) consisting of n x n integer matrices of determinant 1 . In the last two sections we state several results which were recently obtained in joint work with N. Avni, U.Onn and C.Voll.
