Let F be a nonarchimedean local field and let G = GL(n) = GL(n, F). Let E/F be a finite Galois extension. We investigate base change E/F at two levels: at the level of algebraic varieties, and at the level of K-theory. We put special emphasis on the representations with Iwahori fixed vectors, and the tempered spectrum of GL(1) and GL(2). In this context, the prominent arithmetic invariant is the residue degree f(E/F).

Keywords: Local field, general linear group, algebraic variety, base change, K-theory
