The smooth representation theory of a p-adic reductive group G with characteristic zero coefficients is very closely connected to the module theory of its (pro-p) Iwahori-Hecke algebra H(G). In the modular case, where the coefficients have characteristic p, this connection breaks down to a large extent. I will first explain how this connection can be reinstated by passing to a derived setting. It involves a certain differential graded algebra whose zeroth cohomology is H(G). Then I will report on a joint project with R. Ollivier in which we analyze the higher cohomology groups of this dg algebra for the group G = SL_2.
