Abstract: The spectral theory of Roelke and Selberg provides a decomposition of the space of square integrable automorphic forms for the group $ SL(2)$ in terms of eigenfunctions of the non-Euclidean Laplacian and of the Hecke operators. The main result of the paper uses the Roelke-Selberg theory to give an interpretation of the $ L$-functions of Rankin type as "multiplicity factors" in the decomposition of the product of a nonholomorphic Eisenstein series and a cusp form.
