# Baiying Liu : On Fourier coefficients and Arthur parameters for classical groups

Recently, Jiang made a conjecture investigating the connection between two fundamental invariants of an automorphic representation \pi appearing in the discrete spectrum of quasi-split classical groups G(A). The first invariant is the wave front of \pi, WF(\pi), which is the set of maximal unipotent orbits of G, such that \pi admits a non-trivial Fourier coefficients with respect to them. The second invariant is the Arthur parameter \psi of \pi to which one can associate a unipotent orbit \underline{p}(\psi) of the dual group of G. The conjecture says that in any Arthur packet associated to \psi, the Barbasch-Vogan duality of the orbit \underline{p}(\psi) is a sharp upper bound for the wave front of the representations of the packet. This is an important conjecture that vastly generalizes Shahidi's conjecture which claims that in every tempered packet there exists a generic representation. In this talk, I will review this conjecture and present some recent progress towards it. This is a joint work in progress with Dihua Jiang.
