about lemma 5.9 of Mazur's famous Eisenstein ideal paper

In Lemma 5.9 of Chapter II of his famous Eisenstein ideal paper, Mazur proved that when $1/N$ is invertible in the ring $R$, if $\phi$ is a holomorphic modular form in $\omega^k$ over $\Gamma_0(N)$ ...

Real cusp forms

Most literature on modular functions (invariant or covariant with weight k under the full modular PSL_2(Z) group) treats holomorphic functions and introduce the notion of cusp forms (modular functions ...

Twists in “Eisenstein property” in Geometric Langlands

I am trying to read and understand (parts of) Gaitsgory's “Outline of the proof of the Geometric Langlands conjecture for GL(2)” [arXiv link]. In Section 6.4.8 he states "Property Ei", which basically ...

On nonholomorphic Eisenstein series

Could you suggest me a reference where the following non-holomorphic generalization of the Eisenstein series is discussed? $$ G_{k,l}(\tau,z) = \sum_{m,n} (z+m+n\tau)^{-k}(\bar z+m+n\bar \tau)^{-l} ...

Fourier expansion of Eisenstein series at various cusps

Here is my setting: Let $E\in\mathcal{M}_k(\Gamma_0(N))$ be an Eisenstein series (of trivial Nebentypus) that is a normalized eigenform for all the Hecke operators at level $\Gamma_0(N)$. Assume that ...

Eisenstein series and 163?

Given $q = e^{2\pi i \tau}$ and the Eisenstein series $E_{2k}(\tau)$, i.e., $$E_2(\tau) = 1-24\sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{n q^n}{1-q^n}$$ $$E_4(\tau) = 1+240\sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{n^3 q^n}{1-q^n}$$ ...

What is different about the Residual Spectrum

In the context of spectral decomposition of functions in $L^2(\Gamma \backslash \mathfrak{h})$, or Selberg trace formula, we come across three different types of spectrum. First off there is the ...

Where do the real analytic Eisenstein series live?

In obtaining the spectral decomposition of $L^2(\Gamma \backslash G)$ where $G=SL_2(\mathbb{R})$, and $\Gamma$ is an arithmetic subgroup (I am satisfied with $\Gamma = SL (2,\mathbb{Z})$) we have a ...

Relation between Theta series and Eisensteinseries

In "Mackey - Unitary Group Representation in Physics, Probability and Number Theory" on page 326, George Mackey mentions a result of Ludwig Siegel, which was later generalized to semi-simple Lie ...

How do modular forms of half-integral weight relate to the (quasi-modular) Eisenstein series?

The Eisenstein series $$ G_{2k} = \sum_{(m,n) \neq (0,0)} \frac{1}{(m + n\tau)^{2k}} $$ are modular forms (if $k>1$) of weight $2k$ and quasi-modular if $k=1$. It is clear that given modular forms ...

Eisenstein series and the Kronecker limit theorem

It is well known that the first Kronecker limit theorem gives the Laurent expansion of the Eisenstein series $E(z,s)$ over $SL(2,Z)$ at $s=1$; see, for example, Serge Lang's book Elliptic Curves, ...
