Noncompact symmetric and locally symmetric spaces naturally appear in many mathematical theories, including analysis (representation theory, nonabelian harmonic analysis), number theory (automorphic forms), algebraic geometry (modulae) and algebraic topology (cohomology of discrete groups). The main purpose of this book is to introduce uniform constructions of most of the known compactifications with emphasis on their geometric and topological structures.Z. 220(1995)427-444. [Ste2] H.
