Abstract: In this paper we prove the functoriality of the exterior square of cusp forms on $GL_{4}$ as automorphic forms on $GL_{6}$ and the symmetric fourth of cusp forms on $GL_{2}$ as automorphic forms on $GL_{5}$. We prove these by applying a converse theorem of Cogdell and Piatetski-Shapiro to analytic properties of certain $L$-functions obtained by the Langlands-Shahidi method. We give several applications: First, we prove the weak Ramanujan property of cuspidal representations of $GL_{4}$ and the absolute convergence of the exterior square $L$-functions of $GL_{4}$. Second, we prove that the fourth symmetric power $L$-functions of cuspidal representations of $GL_{2}$ are entire, except for those of dihedral and tetrahedral type. Third, we prove the bound $\frac{3}{26}$ for Hecke eigenvalues of Maass forms over any number field.
