Starting from the Poisson summation formula, I discuss spectral summation formulae on GL(2) and GL(3) and present a variety of applications to automorphic forms, analytic number theory, and arithmetic.

We explicitly construct an extractor for two independent sources on $n$ bits, each with min-entropy at least $\log^C n$ for a large enough constant $C$. Our extractor outputs one bit and has error $n^{-\Omega(1)}$. The best previous extractor, by Bourgain, required each source to have min-entropy $.499n$. A key ingredient in our construction is an explicit construction of a monotone, almost-balanced boolean function on n bits that is resilient to coalitions of size $n^{1-\delta}$, for any $\delta > 0$.
