66 LECTURE 7. THE ALGEBRA OF MODULAR FORMS Note that when f is a modular form with respect to a group Γ we have ν g · τ ( f ) = ν τ ( f ) , g Γ . For each τ ∈ H let m τ = 8 > < > : 2 if τ Γ(1) · i , 3 if τ Γ(1) · e 2 πi/ 3 , 1 otherwise. (7.3) Lemma 7.1. Let f ( τ ) be a modular form of weight k with respect to the full modular group Γ(1) . Then X τ ∈H / Γ(1) ν τ ( f ) m τ = k 6 . Proof. Consider the subset P of the modular figure D obtained as follows. First delete the part of D defined by the condition Im τ > h for sufficiently large h such that f has no zeroes or poles for Im τ h . Let C r ( ρ ) ,C r ( ρ 2 ) ,C r ( i ) be a small circle of radius r centered at ρ = e πi/ 3 at ρ 2 and at i , respectively. Delete from D the intersection with each of these circles. Finally if f ( z

Fig.1 Applying the Cauchy Residue Theorem we obtain 1 2 i Z P f d f = X P ( f ) = X P ( f ) m . When we integrate over the part P 1 of the boundary dened by Im = h we obtain 1 2 i Z P 1 f dz f =- ( f ) . In fact, considering the Fourier expansions of f at , we get f ( ) = X n = ( f ) a n e 2 in , f ( ) = X n = ( f ) (2 in ) a n e 2 ni ....
