In obtaining the spectral decomposition of $L^2(\Gamma \backslash G)$ where $G=SL_2(\mathbb{R})$, and $\Gamma$ is an arithmetic subgroup (I am satisfied with $\Gamma = SL (2,\mathbb{Z})$) we have a basis of eigenfunctions of the hyperbolic Laplacian, and orthogonal to that we have the space spanned by the incomplete Eisenstein series, $$ E(z,\psi) = \sum_{\Gamma_\infty \backslash \Gamma} \psi (\Im(\gamma z)) = \frac{1}{2\pi i}\int_{(\sigma)} E(z,s)\tilde{\psi}(s)\mathrm{d}s $$ where $\psi \in C_c^\infty(\mathbb{R}^+)$, $\tilde{\psi}$ is its Mellin transform, and $E(z,s) = \sum_{\gamma \in \Gamma_\infty \backslash \Gamma} \Im(\gamma(z))^s$ is the usual Eisenstein series.

My question is, where does $E(z,s)$ itself live with respect to the vector space $V = L^2(\Gamma \backslash G)$ which can be considered as the vector space of the right regular representation of $G$, and what is this parameter $s$?

A similar question of course goes for $\mathbb{R}$, where does $e^{2\pi i x}$ live with respect to $(L^2(\mathbb{R}), \rho)$?

I would appreciate a representation theoretic flavored answer, that is why I mentioned representations, but any other answer would also be an addition to my understanding of this.

In general, is there an associated space to $(V,\pi)$, an automorphic representation, such that the elements of the vector space are of moderate or rapid growth, instead of decay.
