Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to derive that the square of Fourier coefficients a(n) at a square free positive integer n of modular forms f of half integral weight belonging to Kohnen's spaces of arbitrary odd level and of arbitrary primitive character is essentially equal to the critical value of the zeta function attached to the modular form F of integral weight which is the image of f under the Shimura correspondence. Previously, KohnenZagier had obtained an analogous result in the case of Kohnen's spaces of square free level and of trivial character. Our results give some generalizations of them of KohnenZagier. Our method of the proof is similar to that of Shimura's paper concerning Fourier coefficients of Hilbert modular forms of half integral weight over totally real fields.
