Lectures on the Arthur-Selberg Trace Formula.


Write The First Customer Review

The Arthur-Selberg trace formula is an equality between two kinds of traces: the geometric terms given by the conjugacy classes of a group and the spectral terms given by the induced representations. In general, these terms require a truncation in order to converge, which leads to an equality of truncated kernels. The formulas are difficult in general and even the case of $GL$(2) is nontrivial. The book gives proof of Arthur's trace formula of the 1970s and 1980s, with special attention given to $GL$(2). The problem is that ...
