# On two geometric theta lifts

The theta correspondence has been an important tool in studying cycles in locally symmetric spaces of orthogonal type. In this paper we establish for the orthogonal group O(p,2) an adjointness result between Borcherds's singular theta lift and the Kudla-Millson lift. We extend this result to arbitrary signature by introducing a new singular theta lift for O(p,q). On the geometric side, this lift can be interpreted as a differential character, in the sense of Cheeger and Simons, for the cycles…

This construction answers a question of Dyson by providing the general framework “explaining” Ramanujan's mock theta functions by showing that the number of partitions of a positive integer n is the “trace” of singular moduli of a Maass form arising from the lift of a weight 4 cusp form corresponding to a Calabi–Yau threefold.
