Bessel models and special values of $L$-functions:  In this talk we survey recent results on existence and uniqueness of Bessel models in the context of Gross-Prasad conjectures, and explain the conjectural relationship to special values of $L$-functions for $GSp(4)$. This is joint work with D. Prasad.
