a generalization of a formula of Shimura

Let $\phi$ be a $GL(2)$ automorphic form with Fourier coefficients $a(n)$ and $a(1)=1$. Obviously we have $L(s,\phi)=\sum \frac{a(n)}{n^s}$. Shimura have the following formula $L(s, Ad\; ...

Off critical line zeros for half integer weight $L$-functions

Let $f(z) = \sum_{n=1}^\infty A(n)n^{\frac{k-1}{2}}e(nz)$ be a modular form of weight $k$ for a half integer $k$. Put $$L(s,f) = \sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{A(n)}{n^s} $$ to be the $L$-function. Further ...

Sato-Tate measure for GL(3) Automorphic forms

As we have known, the Sato-Tate measure for GL(2) turned out to be the half circle measure $\frac{1}{2\pi} \sqrt{4-x^2}dx$ on [-2,2], which appears in various versions of equi-distribution problems ...

Different cuspidal automorphic representations with same representations at infinity

Let us fix a representation $\pi_\infty$ of GL(n,$\mathbb R$). Let us fix a character $\chi$ of K, where K is a compact subgroup of $GL(n,\mathbb A_{finite})$. $$K=\Pi_{v<\infty}K_v$$ $K_v$ is ...

What is the relation of the Kuznetsov-Bruggeman trace formula and the Selberg trace formula?

I have read that there is an elementary way to show that the above mentioned trace fromulas are equivalent in the sense, that each of them can be derived directly from the other. There should exist a ...
