We have seen in the first week of the summer school that the buildings blocks for irreducible representations of p-adic groups are the supercuspidal representations. In these talks we will explore explicit exhaustive constructions of these supercuspidal representations and their character formulas and observe a striking parallel between a large class of these representations in the p-adic world and discrete series representations of real algebraic Lie groups. A key ingredient for the construction of supercuspidal representations is the Bruhat--Tits theory and Moy--Prasad filtration, which we will introduce in the lecture series.
