Interpretations of the Eisenstein Series $E_2$ and Invariant Differential Operators

Adam Biggs (University of Manchester)

We shall give an interpretation of the second Eisenstein series $E_2$ as defining a unique ${\mathop{SL}}_2(\mathbb Z)$-invariant differential operator and as a connection on the space $\Omega^{1,0}$ of holomorphic forms on $H$. We shall then explore some simple consequences of this identification and study similar differential operators for congruence subgroups.
