We have already shown that a certain sum of distributions on O(A)I, indexed by équivalence classes in G(Q), equals the intégral of the function The main task of this paper is to show that the integral may be taken inside the sum over x. There does not seem to be any easy way to do this. We are forced to proceed indirectly by first defining and studying a truncation operator AT on functions on G(G)BG(A)’. Recall that k x T(
