KUDLA’S MODULARITY CONJECTURE AND FORMAL FOURIER–JACOBI SERIES

  • JAN HENDRIK BRUINIER (a1) and MARTIN WESTERHOLT-RAUM (a2)
Abstract

We prove modularity of formal series of Jacobi forms that satisfy a natural symmetry condition. They are formal analogs of Fourier–Jacobi expansions of Siegel modular forms. From our result and a theorem of Wei Zhang, we deduce Kudla’s conjecture on the modularity of generating series of special cycles of arbitrary codimension and for all orthogonal Shimura varieties.
