Title:  Weighting the Arthur-Selberg trace formula

Abstract:   An important problem in the study of the Arthur-Selberg trace formula is to weight the spectral side of with data related to automorphic L-functions, and to obtain a parallel geometric expansion. One such method is the use of certain basic functions, and work of Finis-Lapid-Müller allows for their use in the noninvariant trace formula. In this talk, I will motivate this problem from the point of view of what might be called "classical" beyond endoscopy, and discuss the extension of the latter results to the invariant and stable trace formulas. Time permitting, I will explain how this translates the problem of meromorphic continuation of automorphic L-functions to that of zeta functions of prehomogeneous vector spaces.
