This article overviews our results presented in the international workshop on mathematics held at GUtech and Sultan Qaboos University in Oman. The main result is an explicit relation between a Bessel period of some theta lift to the indefinite symplectic group GSp(1, 1) and the central value of an L-function of convolution type for the lift (cf. Theorem 3.2).
