AMS/IP Studies in Advanced Mathematics 2006; 239 pp; softcover Volume: 37 ISBN-10: 0-8218-4198-X ISBN-13: 978-0-8218-4198-3 Order Code: AMSIP/37 | Lie groups are fundamental objects in mathematics. They occur naturally in differential geometry, algebraic geometry, representation theory, number theory, and other areas. Closely related are arithmetic subgroups, locally symmetric spaces and the spectral theory of automorphic forms. This book consists of five chapters which give comprehensive introductions to Lie groups, Lie algebras, arithmetic groups and reduction theories, cohomology of arithmetic groups, and the Petersson and Kuznetsov trace formulas. Titles in this series are co-published with International Press of Boston, Inc., Cambridge, MA. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in lie groups, automorphics forms, and number theory. |
