We discuss construction of a holomorphic form with a divisor D on a smooth, compact, projective Kähler variety X through the application of the Kronecker limit formula to a suitable integral (over D) of an Eisenstein-type series which is defined through a series of transformations of the heat kernel K_X, associated to the Laplacian that acts on the space of smooth functions on X. The special case of X being the n-dimensional complex projective space is further discussed and application of the Kronecker limit formula to computation of the Mähler measure of a linear form is presented. This work is joint with James Cogdell and Jay Jorgenson.
