L norms of holomorphic modular forms in the case of compact quotient

Soumya Das and Jyoti Sengupta
From the journal Forum Mathematicum


We prove a sub-convex estimate for the sup-norm of L2-normalized holomorphic modular forms of weight k on the upper half plane, with respect to the unit group of a quaternion division algebra over ℚ. More precisely we show that when the L2 norm of an eigenfunction f is one,


for any ε>0 and for all k sufficiently large.
