Editorial comments: This is an English translation of the first paper in this section, Об аналитическом виде геометрической теории автоморфных форм. The author would like readers to know that the translation is a little rough.

Editorial Comments: These are the notes for a lecture given at the Institute for Advanced Study on March 30, 2000. It is a preliminary version of a much more carefully written account of essentially the same material published in the volume dedicated to Joseph Shalika, which will also appear on this site eventually.
