Abstract

Let p be an odd prime. It is known that the symplectic group Sp2n(p) has two (algebraically conjugate) irreducible representations of degree (pn + l)/2 realized over Q(p), where e = (-1)(p-1)/2. We study the integral lattices related to these representations for the case pn = 1 mod 4. (The case pn = 3 mod 4 has been considered in a previous paper.) We show that the class of invariant lattices contains either unimodular or p-modular lattices. These lattices are explicitly constructed and classified. Gram matrices of the lattices are given, using a discrete analogue of Maslov index.
