Stabilization of Periods of Eisenstein Series and Bessel Distributions on $GL(3)$ Relative to $U(3)$
We study the regularized periods of Eisenstein series on $GL(3)$ relative to $U(3)$. A stabilization procedure is used to express the periods in terms of $L$-functions. This is combined with the relative trace formula Jacquet and Ye to obtain new identities on Bessel distributions.
