Non-Archimedean L-functions of Siegel and Hilbert modular forms. (English) Zbl 0732.11026
Lecture Notes in Mathematics, 1471. Berlin etc.: Springer-Verlag. 157 p. DM 30.00 (1991).
Using the method of p-adic integration and of Rankin convolutions the author gives in great detail a construction of the p-adic L-functions attached to the standard zeta functions of Siegel modular forms and to the Rankin convolutions of Hilbert modular forms. In addition, a lot of background information is given on p-adic functions (p-adic measures, p- adic Mellin transforms etc.) and on Siegel- and Hilbert modular forms (theta series, Siegel-Eisenstein series, Hecke operators etc.); therefore the book should be accessible also to non-experts in the field.
