# Period Functions for Maass Wave Forms and Cohomology

*R. Bruggeman; J. Lewis; D. Zagier*

The authors construct explicit isomorphisms between spaces of
Maass wave forms and cohomology groups for discrete cofinite groups
\(\Gamma\subset\mathrm{PSL}_2({\mathbb{R}})\).

In the
case that \(\Gamma\) is the modular group
\(\mathrm{PSL}_2({\mathbb{Z}})\) this gives a cohomological
framework for the results in Period functions for Maass wave
forms. I, of

The authors introduce the concepts of mixed parabolic
cohomology group and semi-analytic vectors in principal
series representation. This enables them to describe cohomology groups
isomorphic to spaces of Maass cusp forms, spaces spanned by residues
of Eisenstein series, and spaces of all \(\Gamma\)-invariant
eigenfunctions of the Laplace operator.

For spaces of Maass cusp forms the authors also describe isomorphisms to
parabolic cohomology groups with smooth coefficients and standard
cohomology groups with distribution coefficients. They use the latter
correspondence to relate the Petersson scalar product to the cup
product in cohomology.
