# Questions tagged [automorphic-forms]

An automorphic form is a well-behaved function from a topological group $G$ to the complex numbers (or complex vector space) which is invariant under the action of a discrete subgroup $\Gamma \subset G$ of the topological group. Automorphic forms are a generalization of the idea of periodic ...

### Modular forms for different groups than $SL(2,\mathbb Z)$

I know some theory of "classical" modular forms, that is functions in the complex upper-half plane satisfying $f(\frac {az+b} {cz+d})=(cz+d)^kf(z)$ I know one can study modular forms on finite-...

### Meaning of Ramanujan-Petersson conjecture? [closed]

I found it very hard to explain the Ramanujan-Petersson conjecture in a straightforward way. I can only say now: think about automorphic forms as sound waves, and then the conjecture predicts that ...
