## Abstract

Suppose that *f* is a primitive Hecke eigenform or a Mass cusp form for Γ_{0}(*N*) with normalized eigenvalues *λf* (*n*) and let *X* > 1 be a real number. We consider the sum \({{\cal S}_k}(X): = \sum\limits_{n < X} {\sum\limits_{n = {n_1},{n_2}, \ldots ,{n_k}} {{\lambda _f}({n_1}){\lambda _f}({n_2}) \ldots {\lambda _f}({n_k})}}\) and show that \({{\cal S}_k}(X){\ll _{f,\varepsilon }}{X^{1 - 3/(2(k + 3)) + \varepsilon}}\) for every *k* ⩾ 1 and *ε* > 0. The same problem was considered for the case *N* = 1, that is for the full modular group in Lü (2012) and Kanemitsu et al. (2002). We consider the problem in a more general setting and obtain bounds which are better than those obtained by the classical result of Landau (1915) for *k* ⩾ 5. Since the result is valid for arbitrary level, we obtain, as a corollary, estimates on sums of the form \({{\cal S}_k}(X)\), where the sum involves restricted coefficients of some suitable half integral weight modular forms.
