This thesis is a presentation of some of my research activities while at Clemson University. In particular this includes joint work on the factorization of eigenforms and their relationship to Rankin- Selberg L-values, and nearly holomorphic eigenforms. The main tools used on the factorization of eigenforms are linear algebra, the j function, and the Rankin-Selberg Method. The main tool used on nearly holomorphic modular forms is the Rankin-Cohen bracket operator.
