In the fall (after an initial motivational lecture) we will first discuss reduction theory for connected reductive groups over a general global field; in the end we just need this for GL(2), but even that for a general global field involves passing away from the GL(2)-case via Weil restriction to reduce to a possibly non-split group. With that out of the way, we take up some facts about the cuspidal part of L^{2} for a general reductive group over a global field, and then finally focus on GL(2) for the rest of the seminar, more-or-less following Godement with supplementary references that arise along the way.
Familiarity with functional analysis on Hilbert spaces, adelic class field theory, classical modular forms, Tate's thesis, and the basic structure of algebraic groups will be assumed (though for many purposes you can focus on GL(2) at the cost of some loss of conceptual clarity on the algebraic group aspects).
