Abstract: The theory of Eisenstein series is central to the spectral theory of locally symmetric spaces, which was developed by Selberg and Langlands in the 1950s and 1960s. We will explain a different approach for both the meromorphic continuation of Eisenstein series and spectral theory. This goes back to ideas from the 1980s.
