Abstract

Let F be a genus two Siegel newform and g a classical newform, both of squarefree levels and of equal weight $ell$. We derive an explicit integral representation for the degree eight L-function L(s, F times g). As an application, we prove a reciprocity law --- predicted by Deligne's conjecture --- for the critical special values L(m, F times g) where m in Z, 2 le m le frac{ell}{2}-1$. The proof of our integral representation has two major components: the generalization of an earlier integral representation due to Furusawa and a ``pullback formula" relating the complicated Eisenstein series of Furusawa with a simpler one on a higher rank group. The critical value result follows from our integral representation using rationality results of Garrett and Harris and the theory of nearly holomorphic forms due to Shimura.
