Abstract: Let $ G=Sp_4/k$ be the $ k$-split symplectic group of $ k$-rank 2, where $ k$ is a totally real number field. In this paper we compute the Eisenstein cohomology of $ G$ with respect to any finite-dimensional, irreducible, $ k$-rational representation $ E$ of $ G_\infty =R_{k/\mathbb{Q}}G(\mathbb{R})$, where $ R_{k/\mathbb{Q}}$ denotes the restriction of scalars from $ k$ to $ \mathbb{Q}$. This approach is based on the work of Schwermer regarding the Eisenstein cohomology for $ Sp_4/\mathbb{Q}$, Kim's description of the residual spectrum of $ Sp_4$, and the Franke filtration of the space of automorphic forms. In fact, taking the representation theoretic point of view, we write, for the group $ G$, the Franke filtration with respect to the cuspidal support, and give a precise description of the filtration quotients in terms of induced representations. This is then used as a prerequisite for the explicit computation of the Eisenstein cohomology. The special focus is on the residual Eisenstein cohomology. Under a certain compatibility condition for the coefficient system $ E$ and the cuspidal support, we prove the existence of non-trivial residual Eisenstein cohomology classes, which are not square-integrable, that is, represented by a non-square-integrable residue of an Eisenstein series.
