This book is an elementary self-contained introduction to some constructions of representation theory and related topics of differential geometry and analysis.

Topics covered include the theory of various Fourier-like integral operators as Segal–Bargmann transforms, Gaussian integral operators in $L^2$ and in the Fock space, integral operators with theta-kernels, the geometry of real and $p$-adic classical groups and symmetric spaces. The heart of the book is the Weil representation of the symplectic group (real and complex realizations, relations with theta-functions and modular forms, $p$-adic and adelic constructions) and representations in Hilbert spaces of holomorphic functions of several complex variables.

The book is addressed to graduate students and researchers in representation theory, differential geometry, and operator theory. The reader is supposed to be familiar with standard university courses in linear algebra, functional analysis, and complex analysis.

Keywords: Semisimple Lie groups and their representations, classical groups, symmetric spaces, Fourier transform, p-adic groups, integral operators, Hilbert spaces of holomorphic functions, holomorphic discrete series, reproducing kernels, theta-functions, Cartier
