Determinants of Laplacians on Hilbert modular surfaces. (English) Zbl 1440.11172

Summary: We study regularized determinants of Laplacians acting on the space of Hilbert-Maass forms for the Hilbert modular group of a real quadratic field. We show that these determinants are described by Selberg type zeta functions introduced in [Y. Gon, Proc. Japan Acad., Ser. A 88, No. 9, 145–148 (2012; Zbl 1305.11077); J. Number Theory 147, 396–453 (2015; Zbl 1380.11073); ].
