# Lecture Notes on Nil-Theta Functions

*L. Auslander*

A co-publication of the AMS and CBMS

This monograph consists of three chapters covering the following
topics: Foundations, (1) Bilinear forms and presentations of certain
2-step nilpotent Lie groups, (2) Discrete subgroups of the Heisenberg group,
(3) The automorphism group of the Heisenberg group, (4) Fundamental unitary
representations of the Heisenberg group, (5) The Fourier transform and the
Weil-Brezin map, (6) Distinguished subspaces and left action: Jacobi theta
functions and the finite Fourier transform, (1) Nil-theta functions and
Jacobi-theta functions, (2) The algebra of the finite Fourier transform;
Abelian varieties, nil-theta and theta functions, (1) A general
construction and algebraic foundations, (2) Nil-theta functions associated
with a positive definite H-morphism of an Abelian variety, (3) The
relation between nil-theta and classical theta functions.

In presenting the material, the author has attempted to lay a careful
foundation and has stressed low-dimensional examples and special computations
when proving general results by general techniques.

This an expository piece of work, although some of the results are new.
