Siegel modular form1
Siegel modular form
In mathematics,
Siegel modular forms
are a major type of automorphic form. These stand in relation to theconventional
elliptic
modular forms as abelian varieties do in relation to elliptic curves; the complex manifoldsconstructed as in the theory are basic models for what a moduli space for abelian varieties (with some extra levelstructure) should be, as quotients of the Siegel upper half-space rather than the upper half-plane by discrete groups.The modular forms of the theory are holomorphic functions on the set of symmetric

matrices with positivedefinite imaginary part; the forms must satisfy an automorphy condition. Siegel modular forms can be thought of asmultivariable modular forms, i.e. as special functions of several complex variables.Siegel modular forms were first investigated by Carl Ludwig Siegel in the 1930s for the purpose of studyingquadratic forms analytically. These primarily arise in various branches of number theory, such as arithmeticgeometry and elliptic cohomology. Siegel modular forms have also been used in some areas of physics, such asconformal field theory.

Koecher principle
The theorem known as the
Koecher principle
states that if is a Siegel modular form of weight , level 1, anddegree , then is bounded on subsets of of the formwhere . Corollary to this theorem is the fact that Siegel modular forms of degree have Fourierexpansions and are thus holomorphic at infinity.
