The classical prime geodesic theorem (PGT) gives an asymptotic formula (as x tends to infinity) for the number of closed geodesics with length at most x on a hyperbolic manifold M. Closed geodesics correspond to conjugacy classes of π1(M) = Γ where Γ is a lattice in G = SO(n,1). The theorem can be rephrased in the following format. Let $$X(\mathbb{Z},\Gamma)$$ be the space of representations of $$\mathbb{Z}$$ into Γ modulo conjugation by Γ. $$X(\mathbb{Z},G)$$ is defined similarly. Let \pi… Expand
