Automorphic forms on $\operatorname{PGSp}(2)$
Yuval Z. Flicker
Abstract.
The theory of lifting of automorphic and admissible
representations is developed in a new case of great classical interest:
Siegel automorphic forms. The self-contragredient representations of PGL(4)
are determined as lifts of representations of either symplectic PGSp(2) or
orthogonal SO(4) rank two split groups. Our approach to the lifting uses
the global tool of the trace formula together with local results such as the
fundamental lemma. The lifting is stated in terms of character relations.
This permits us to introduce a definition of packets and quasi-packets of
representations of the projective symplectic group of similitudes PGSp(2),
and analyse the structure of all packets. All representations, not only
generic or tempered ones, are studied. Globally we obtain a multiplicity one
theorem for the discrete spectrum of the projective symplectic group PGSp(2),
a rigidity theorem for packets and quasi-packets, determine all counterexamples
to the naive Ramanujan conjecture, and compute the multiplicity of each member
in a packet or quasi-packet in the discrete spectrum. The lifting from SO(4)
to PGL(4) amounts to establishing a product of two representations of GL(2)
with central characters whose product is 1. The rigidity theorem for SO(4)
amounts to a strong rigidity statement for a pair of representations of
$\operatorname{GL}(2,\mathbb{A})$.
