Abstract: For a discontinuous group $ \Gamma \subset {\text{SL}}(2,R)$, Poincaré produced a corresponding nonconstant automorphic form, meromorphic on the open upper half plane $ {\Pi ^ + }$. When the domain of meromorphicity grows larger than $ {\Pi ^ + }$, the type of group which can support an automorphic form is restricted, and the corresponding forms are generally quite simple. A complete analysis of this phenomenon is presented, with examples which show results are best possible.
