There are various boundaries one can define on the universal cover of a Riemannian manifold of negative curvature. We will present two of them, namely the geometric boundary and the Martin boundary, and show that they coincide for certain cases. We will also show some properties of the spectrum of the Laplacian using measures on the geometric boundary and a generalized idea of Margulis related to counting geodesic paths.
