Beyond endoscopy

Contributions to Automorphic Forms, Geometry, and Number Theory: A Volume in Honor of Joseph Shalika . (2004)

Author's comments: This paper has appeared in the Shalika volume, published by the Johns Hopkins University Press. The published paper is not exactly the same as that here because the text was modified by the Press, apparently for reasons of economy. Among other things footnotes were removed and this required somewhat brutal measures. The version in this collection is the preferred version.
