Abstract: Let and be relatively prime positive integers, let be a Dirichlet character modulo , and let be a positive integer. Denote by the space of cusp forms on of weight and character , a space denoted simply when is the trivial character. Beginning with Hijikata's formula for the trace of acting on , we develop a formula which essentially reduces the computation of this trace to looking up values in a table. From this formula we develop very simple formulas for (1) the dimension of and (2) the trace of acting on .
