Sturm bounds for Siegel modular forms of degree 2 and odd weights

  • Toshiyuki KikutaEmail author

We correct the proof of the theorem in the previous paper presented by Kikuta, which concerns Sturm bounds for Siegel modular forms of degree 2 and of even weights modulo a prime number dividing \(2\cdot 3\). We give also Sturm bounds for them of odd weights for any prime numbers, and we prove their sharpness. The results cover the case where Fourier coefficients are algebraic numbers.
