Let h be the Poincaré upper half-plane {z = x + iy ∈ ℂ|y > 0} endowed with the hyperbolic Laplacian Δ = —y2(∂2/∂x2 + ∂2/∂y2), and, for an integer N ≥ 1, let Г0(N) SL2() be the subgroup of matrices whose lower left entry is divisible by N. Let λ ∈ ℂ, and let ω: ( /N )* → ℂ* be a Dirichlet character.
