This paper gives a simple method for constructing vector-valued Siegel modular forms from scalar-valued ones. The method is efficient in producing the siblings of Delta, the smallest weight cusp forms that appear in low degrees. It also shows the strong relations between these modular forms of different genera. We illustrate this by a number of examples. 

On vector-valued Siegel modular forms of degree 2 and weight (j,2)

We formulate a conjecture that describes the vector-valued Siegel modular forms of degree 2 and level 2 of weight Sym^j det^2 and provide some evidence for it. We construct such modular forms of

Covariants of binary sextics and vector-valued Siegel modular forms of genus two

We extend Igusa’s description of the relation between invariants of binary sextics and Siegel modular forms of degree 2 to a relation between covariants and vector-valued Siegel modular forms of

Heat equation for theta functions and vector-valued modular forms

We give a method for constructing vector-valued modular forms from singular scalar-valued ones of a suitable type. As an application, we prove that two remarkable spaces of vector-valued modular

Minimal modularity lifting for nonregular symplectic representations

In this paper, we prove a minimal modularity lifting theorem for Galois representations (conjecturally) associated to Siegel modular forms of genus two which are holomorphic limits of discrete series

Exploring modular forms and the cohomology of local systems on moduli spaces by counting points

This is a report on a joint project in experimental mathematics with Jonas Bergstr\"om and Carel Faber where we obtain information about modular forms by counting curves over finite fields.

Analytic evaluation of Hecke eigenvalues for Siegel modular forms of degree two

The standard approach to evaluate Hecke eigenvalues of a Siegel modular eigenform F is to determine a large number of Fourier coefficients of F and then compute the Hecke action on those

Concomitants of ternary quartics and vector-valued Siegel and Teichmüller modular forms of genus three

We show how one can use the representation theory of ternary quartics to construct all vector-valued Siegel modular forms and Teichmüller modular forms of degree 3. The relation between the order of

In this memoir, we study the even unimodular lattices of rank at most 24, as well as a related collection of automorphic forms of the orthogonal and symplectic groups of small rank. Our guide is the

Level one algebraic cusp forms of classical groups of small ranks

We determine the number of level 1, polarized, algebraic regular, cuspidal automorphic representations of GL_n over Q of any given infinitesimal character, for essentially all n <= 8. For this, we

A Siegel cusp form of degree 12 and weight 12

The theta series of the two unimodular even positive definite lattices of rank 16 are known to be linearly dependent in degree at most 3 and linearly independent in degree 4 and the resulting Siegel cusp form of degree 12 and weight 12 is a Hecke eigenform which seems to have interesting properties.


In this article we construct a theory of Dirichlet series with Euler product expansions corresponding to analytic automorphic forms for the integral symplectic group in genus 2; in Chapter 2 we
