We define a new class of completions of locally symmetric varieties of type IV which interpolates between the Baily-Borel compactification and Mumford’s toric compactifications. An arithmetic arrangement in a locally symmetric variety of type IV determines such a completion canonically. This completion admits a natural contraction that leaves the complement… CONTINUE READING
