Abstract: The dimension of the space of cusp forms on the degree $ n$ Siegel upper half-space can be obtained from the Selberg trace formula; in this paper we compute the contribution from the conjugacy classes of regular elliptic elements in $ \operatorname{Sp}(n,{\mathbf{Z}})$ using Weyl's character formula for representations of $ {\text{GL}}(n,{\mathbf{C}})$.
