Event description: 

We give another proof of the endoscopic fundamental lemma (theorem of Laumon-Ngo) for unitary Lie algebras in characteristic 0.  We study the compatibility between Fourier transform and transfer and we prove that the compatibility in the Jacquet-Rallis setting, after taking limits using germ expansions, will imply the compatibility in the endoscopic setting for unitary group.
