  • Consists entirely of new material
  • Contents is related to the book Automorphic pseudodifferential analysis and higher-level Weyl calculi (appeared in Progress in Mathematics) by the same author: one-dimensional pseudo-differential analysis is considered in both volumes; however, the results are disjoint: the former book deals with automorphic symbols, while in this one, it is the distributions to which the operators under consideration are applied that carry the arithmetic; in this way, L-functions, rather than non-holomorphic modular forms, have the dominant role
(12) (4) Let ? be the unique even non-trivial Dirichlet character mod 12, and let ? be the unique (odd) non-trivial Dirichlet character mod 4. Consider on the line the distributions m (12) ? d (x)= ?

Then, consider the metaplectic representation Met, 2 a unitary representation in L (R) of the metaplectic group G, the twofold cover of the group G = SL(2,R), the de?nition of which will be recalled in Section 2: it extends as a representation in the spaceS (R) of tempered distributions.
