Definition of a modular form [an error occurred while processing this directive]

### Here is a definition that is used in my course on modular forms.

We define the modular group $\text{SL}_2(ZZ)$ to be the group of matrices of the form

$\{[[a,b],[c,d]] \in \text{SL}_2(RR): a,b,c,d \in ZZ \}$,

and we define modular forms of weight $k$ and level $1$ to be holomorphic functions on the upper half plane which satisfy the following criteria:
1. $f(\frac{az+b}{cz+d})=(cz+d)^{-k} f(z)$ if $[[a,b],[c,d]] \in \text{SL}_2(ZZ)$.
2. The Fourier expansion of $f$ has the form

$f(z)=\sum_{n=0}^\infty a_n e^{2\pi i z}$.

If $a_0$ is zero, then we say that $f$ is a cusp form. [an error occurred while processing this directive]
