Hello everyone,

I'm currently proofreading Hervé Jacquet's and Robert Langlands's Automorphic Forms on GL(2) for future republication. I was wondering if some of you had noticed mistakes in it that we might correct.

Mathematical errors, misspellings, typos---any mistake, no matter how small, is welcome!

Are you talking about the book by Jacquet and Langlands, or something else? – user30035 Feb 15 '13 at 22:54
Yes, I've just corrected the question text. Thank you, wccanard! – Anthony Pulido Feb 16 '13 at 23:52
My question may seem obvious, but did you ask Jacquet? One year he was teaching a course at Columbia on this book, and kept telling us half-jokingly how many errors he found in it. – Joël Feb 17 '13 at 3:33
Have you tried clicking on his user name? – stankewicz Jun 28 '13 at 13:48
@stankewicz while this works 'now (when you wrote your comment) I am not sure it worked at the time the original comment was written. – user9072 Jul 28 '13 at 17:59

Lemma 6.1 (ii) on page 111: .... if and only if $n \geq |p-q|$

I am not so sure about the following, which might stem from an unconventional notation only, which I might have overlooked:

page 271 (vi) .. $\pi i$ instead of $\pi$ in the function field formula

page 272 (vii): ... but $\frac{\log q}{4 \pi} \int\limits_0^{2\pi i/\log q} \dots$

similar for (viii)

I just saw this. Thank you! – Anthony Pulido Sep 22 '13 at 12:54
My apologies for being so late! I think I see what you are referring to, but I wonder about which edition of GL(2) you are using? I looked on the site and in a copy of the printed Springer notes from 1970, but neither matches the page numbers you've given... – Anthony Pulido Mar 13 '14 at 21:16
In the first comment, related to Lemma 6.1(ii), do you mean that $n \geq a + b$ should be changed to $n \geq |p - q|$? – Anthony Pulido Mar 13 '14 at 21:19
