Speaker: Jens Funke (University of Durham)

In this talk we give an introduction to theta series and theta lifts and its representation-theoretic background.

We then explain singular theta lifts of Borcherds type and employ the reductive dual pair U(p, q) × U(1, 1) to construct two different kinds of Green forms for codimension q-cycles in Shimura varieties associated to unitary groups. In particular, we establish an adjointness result between the singular theta lift and the Kudla-Millson theta lift and discuss further applications in the context of the Kudla Program.

This is joint work with Eric Hofmann.
