Lafforgue has proposed a new approach to the principle of functoriality in a test case, namely, the case of automorphic induction from an idele class character of a quadratic extension. For technical reasons, he considers only the case of function fields and assumes the data is unramified. In this paper, we show that his method applies without these restrictions. The ground field is a number field or a function field and the data may be ramified.

Introduction. The vanishing orders of L-functions at the centers of their functional equations are interesting objects to study as one sees, for example, from the Birch-Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture on the Hasse-Weil L-functions associated with elliptic curves over number fields. In this paper we study the central zeros of the following types of L-functions: (i) the derivatives of the Mellin transforms of Hecke eigenforms for SL₂(ℤ), (ii) the Rankin-Selberg...
