Abstract: One wants to know the extent to which a locally compact group G is determined by the isomorphism class of a discrete uniform subgroup $ \Gamma $. Among other things, we show that if G has only finitely many components and K is a maximal compact subgroup then $ \Gamma $ determines the dimension of the space $ G/K$. We then specialize our results to the case where $ G/K$ is a riemannian symmetric space.
