The Aubert-Baum-Plymen conjecture says that there is a simple geometric structure within the representation theory of p-adic groups such as SL(N).

This PhD thesis will focus on SL(2), SL(3) and SL(4). We prove the conjecture for SL(2); part (3) of the conjecture for SL(3); and the principal series case for SL(4, Q_p) with p >2.

The constructions are, for the most part, very explicit.

One case is especially interesting: we reveal a tetrahedron of reducibility in the tempered dual of SL(4, Q_2).
