### Abstract

We relate the singularities of a scheme X to the asymptotics of the number of points of X over finite rings. This gives a partial answer to a question of Mustata. We use this result to count representations of arithmetic lattices. More precisely, if Γ is an arithmetic lattice whose Q-rank is greater than 1, then let r_{n}.(Γ)be the number of irreducible n-dimensional representations of Γ up to isomorphism. We prove that there is a constant C (in fact, any C > 40 suffices) such that r_{n}(Γ) = O(n^{C}) for every such Γ. This answers a question of Larsen and Lubotzky.

N2 - We relate the singularities of a scheme X to the asymptotics of the number of points of X over finite rings. This gives a partial answer to a question of Mustata. We use this result to count representations of arithmetic lattices. More precisely, if Γ is an arithmetic lattice whose Q-rank is greater than 1, then let rn.(Γ)be the number of irreducible n-dimensional representations of Γ up to isomorphism. We prove that there is a constant C (in fact, any C > 40 suffices) such that rn(Γ) = O(nC) for every such Γ. This answers a question of Larsen and Lubotzky.
