Let X be the wonderful compactification of a connected adjoint semisimple group G defined over a number field K. We prove Manin’s conjecture on the asymptotic (as T → ∞) of the number of K-rational points of X of height less than T, and give an explicit construction of a measure on X(A), generalizing Peyre’s measure, which describes the asymptotic distribution of the rational points G(K) on X(A). Our approach is based on the mixing property of L^2(G(K)\G(A)) which we obtain with a rate of convergence.
