This book is a course in representation theory of semisimple groups, automorphic forms, and the relations between these two subjects, written by some of the world's leading experts in these fields. It is based on the 1996 instructional conference of the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences in Edinburgh. The book begins with an introductory treatment of structure theory and ends with an essay be Robert Langlands on the current status of functoriality. All papers areintended to provide overviews of the topics they address, and the authors have supplied extensive bibliographies to guide the reader who wants more detail.The aim of the articles is to treat representation theory with two goals in mind: i) to help analysts make systematics use of Lie groups in work on harmonic analysis, differential equations, and mathematical physics, and ii) to provide number theorists with the representation-theoretic input to Wiles's proof of Fermat's Last Theorem.
