Classical automorphic forms are generally attached to subgroups of Gamma = SL(2,Z) and are functions on Gamma\H = Gamma\PSL(2,R)/SO(2,R). The come in two flavors: holomorphic modular forms and (spherical or weight 0) Maass forms. These two types of automorphic forms are both special cases of Maass forms with weight, and they collectively generate a basis of L^2(Gamma\PSL(2,R)). The spherical Maass forms have been generalized to subgroups of SL(n,Z), and these are currently a popular topic of study, particularly on SL(3,Z). This talk will describe the generalization to Maass forms with weight on SL(3,Z), the new types of non-spherical forms that arise, and what is currently known about them.
