In this article, we prove an Omega result for the Hecke eigenvalues λF(n) of Maass forms F which are Hecke eigenforms in the space of Siegel modular forms of weight k, genus two for the Siegel modular group Sp2(). In particular, we prove


when c>0 is an absolute constant. This improves the earlier result


of Das and the third author. We also show that for any n3, one has


where c1>0 is an absolute constant. This improves an earlier result of Pitale and Schmidt. Further, we investigate the limit points of the sequence {λF(n)/nk-1}n and show that it has infinitely many limit points. Finally, we show that λF(n)>0 for all n, a result proved earlier by Breulmann by a different technique.

Keywords: Omega result; Hecke eigenvalues; Maass forms
