In this paper, we use a regularized theta lifting to construct harmonic Maass forms corresponding to binary theta functions of weight $k \ge 2$ under the $\xi$-operator. As a result, we show that their holomorphic parts have algebraic Fourier coefficients, with compatible Galois action. As an application, we prove rationality properties of coeffici...

Gross and Zagier conjectured that the CM values (of certain Hecke translates) of the automorphic Green function Gs(z1,z2) for the elliptic modular group at positive integral spectral parameter s are given by logarithms of algebraic numbers in suitable class fields. We prove a partial average version of this conjecture, where we sum in the first var...

Gross and Zagier conjectured that the CM values (of certain Hecke translates) of the automorphic Green function $G_s(z_1,z_2)$ for the elliptic modular group at positive integral spectral parameter $s$ are given by logarithms of algebraic numbers in suitable class fields. We prove a partial average version of this conjecture, where we sum in the fi...

We complete several generating functions to non-holomorphic modular forms in two variables. For instance, we consider the generating function of a natural family of meromorphic modular forms of weight two. We then show that this generating series can be completed to a smooth, non-holomorphic modular form of weights 3/2 and two. Moreover, it turns o...

Here we study the recently introduced notion of a locally harmonic Maass form and its applications to the theory of $L$-functions. In particular, we find finite formulas for certain twisted central $L$-values of a family of elliptic curves in terms of finite sums over canonical binary quadratic forms. This yields vastly simpler formulas related to...

We propose an algorithm for computing bases and dimensions of spaces of invariants of Weil representations of $\mathrm{SL}_2(\mathbb{Z})$ associated to finite quadratic modules. We prove that these spaces are defined over $\mathbb{Z}$, and that their dimension remains stable if we replace the base field by suitable finite prime fields.

We study special values of regularized theta lifts at complex multiplication (CM) points. In particular, we show that CM values of Borcherds products can be expressed in terms of finitely many Fourier coefficients of certain harmonic weak Maa{\ss} forms of weight one. As it turns out, these coefficients are logarithms of algebraic integers whose pr...

Our aim is to clarify the relationship between Kudla's and Bruinier's Green functions attached to special cycles on Shimura varieties of orthogonal and unitary type. These functions play a key role in the arithmetic geometry of the special cycles in the context of Kudla's program. In particular, we show that the generating series obtained by taking...

We develop a regularization for Petersson inner products of arbitrary weakly holomorphic modular forms, generalizing several known regularizations. As an application, we extend work of Duke, Imamoglu and Toth on regularized inner products of weakly holomorphic modular forms of weights 0 and 3/2. These regularized inner products can be evaluated in...

We study the space of vector valued theta functions for the Weil
representation of a positive definite even lattice of rank two with fundamental
discriminant. We work out the relation of this space to the corresponding
scalar valued theta functions of weight one and determine an orthogonal basis
with respect to the Petersson inner product. Moreover...

We describe the complex multiplication (CM) values of modular functions for
$\Gamma_0(N)$ whose divisor is given by a linear combination of Heegner
divisors in terms of special cycles on the stack of CM elliptic curves. In
particular, our results apply to Borcherds products of weight $0$ for
$\Gamma_0(N)$. By working out explicit formulas for the s...

We prove that there are only finitely many isometry classes of even lattices
$L$ of signature $(2,n)$ for which the space of cusp forms of weight $1+n/2$
for the Weil representation of the discriminant group of $L$ is trivial. We
compute the list of these lattices. They have the property that every Heegner
divisor for the orthogonal group of $L$ ca...

n this thesis, special values of regularized theta lifts at complex multiplication (CM) points are studied. In particular, it is shown that CM values of Borcherds products can be expressed in terms of finitely many Fourier coefficients of certain harmonic weak Maass forms of weight one. As it turns out, these coefficients are logarithms of algebrai...

We show that the values of Borcherds products on Shimura varieties of
orthogonal type at certain CM points are given in terms of coefficients of the
holomorphic part of weight one harmonic weak Maass forms. Furthermore, we
investigate the arithmetic properties of these coefficients. As an example, we
obtain an analog of the Gross-Zagier theorem on...

We show that the twisted traces of CM values of weak Maass forms of weight 0
are Fourier coefficients of vector valued weak Maass forms of weight 3/2. These
results generalize work by Zagier on traces of singular moduli. We utilize a
twisted version of the theta lift considered by Bruinier and Funke.
