# Cohomology of arithmetic groups and Eisenstein series - an introduction (continued)

 Locally Symmetric Spaces Seminar Topic: Cohomology of arithmetic groups and Eisenstein series - an introduction (continued) Speaker: Joachim Schwermer Affiliation: Universität Wien; Member, School of Mathemtics Date: Tuesday, October 31 Time/Room: 10:00am - 11:45am/Physics Library, Bloomberg Hall 201

I intend to cover some basic questions and material regarding the phenomena in the cohomology of an arithmetic group "at infinity" when the corresponding locally symmetric space originating with an algebraic $k$-group $G$ of positive $k$-rank is non-compact [$k$ an algebraic number field]. The theory of Eisenstein series plays a fundamental role in this discussion.
