Table of contents

* Focuses on two fundamental questions related to semisimple Lie groups: the geometry of Riemannian symmetric spaces and their compactifications, and branching laws for unitary representations

* Wide applications of compactification techniques

* Concrete examples and relevant exercises engage the reader

* Knowledge of basic representation theory of Lie groups, semisimple Lie groups and symmetric spaces is required
