We study the Casselman-Jacquet functor J, viewed as a functor from the (derived) category of (g,K)-modules to the (derived) category of (g,N−)-modules, N− is the negative maximal unipotent. We give a functorial definition of J as a certain right adjoint functor, and identify it as a composition of two averaging functors Av^N−!∘Av^N∗. We show that it is also isomorphic to the composition Av^N−∗∘Av^N!. Our key tool is the pseudo-identity functor that acts on the (derived) category of (twisted) D-modules on an algebraic stack.
