Abstract
Let Fo be a nonarchimedean locally compact field of residual characteristic not 2. Let G be a classical group over Fo (with no quaternionic algebra involved) which is not of type An for n > 1. Let b be an element of the Lie algebra g of G that we assume semisimple for simplicity. Let H be the centralizer of b in G and h its Lie algebra. Let I and Ib denote the (enlarged) BruhatTits buildings of G and H respectively. We prove that there is a natural set of maps jb : Ib ? I which enjoy the following properties: they are affine, Hequivariant, map any apartment of Ib into an apartment of I and are compatible with the Lie algebra filtrations of g and h. In a particular case, where this set is reduced to one element, we prove that jb is characterized by the last property in the list. We also prove a similar characterization result for the general linear group.
