Summary and Info
The geometry and analysis that is discussed in this book extends to classical results for general discrete or Lie groups, and the methods used are analytical, but are not concerned with what is described these days as real analysis. Most of the results described in this book have a dual formulation: they have a "discrete version" related to a finitely generated discrete group and a continuous version related to a Lie group. The authors chose to center this book around Lie groups, but could easily have pushed it in several other directions as it interacts with the theory of second order partial differential operators, and probability theory, as well as with group theory.
