Hecke Bound of Vector-valued Modular Forms and its Relationship with Cuspidality

Full-text: Open access


In this paper, we prove that if the Fourier coefficients of a vector-valued modular form satisfy the Hecke bound, then it is cuspidal. Furthermore, we obtain an analogous result with regard to Jacobi forms by applying an isomorphism between vector-valued modular forms and Jacobi forms. As an application, we prove a result on the growth of the number of representations of $m$ by a positive definite quadratic form $Q$.
