SPECTRAL THEORY OF AUTOMORPHIC FORMS: A VERY BRIEF INTRODUCTION
These are the notes to accompany some lectures delivered at the 2005 NATO ASI summer school in Montréal. They constitute an introduction to the spectral theory of automorphic forms. The viewpoint is slightly nonstandard, in that we present first the “group representation” viewpoint and later descend to the upper-half plane.
