When is a locally symmetric space compact? How to describe growth of functions on a non-compact locally symmetric space? Can one relate a locally symmetric space to simpler (lower-rank) ones? Why do people consider Eisenstein series? By discussing these questions, we’ll try to illustrate some basic ideas behind the truncation operator introduced last time.
