Dear Prof. Dr. Akshay Venkatesh:
What a privilege to discover your ArXiv work, especially as related
to a bound period of automorphic forms and to periods and harmonic
analysis on spherical varieties. I have quite a lot of work to do
before I can responsibly cite your work, yet I can well imagine doing so.
I expect your substantial research will open and inform our work
in very significant ways. It might even close it down! Anticipating
no less, let me send a special thanks for all your work and scholarship.
Yes, “Thank you!”
