"Spectral asymptotics"

Abstract: Let M be a Riemannian manifold and Delta the Laplacian on M. If M is compact then the spectrum of Delta obeys Weyl's law. If M has finite volume, the situation is much more involved. I will review what is known and expected for locally symmetric spaces, including recent results of E.~Lindenstrauss-Venkatesh and L.-Muller.

Light refreshments will be served in the faculty lounge at 3:30.
