Locally symmetric spaces are a class of Riemannian manifolds which play a special role in number theory. In this talk, I will introduce these spaces through example, and show some of their unusual properties from the point of view of both analysis and topology. I will conclude by discussing their (still very mysterious) relationship with algebraic geometry.
