A quasi-modular form of weight $k$ and multiplier system $v$ for a fuchsian group $G$ is a function $f$ from $\mathfrak{H}$ to $\mathbb{C}$ which is holomorphic and satisfies a certain growth condition and, for any $\gamma=\left(\begin{matrix}a&b\\c&d\end{matrix}\right)\in G$ and $z\in\mathfrak{H}$, we have: \[ (f|_k\gamma)(z)=v(\gamma)P\left(z,\frac{c}{cz+d}\right), \] where $P$ is a polynomial in two variables whose coefficients depend only on $f$ and not on $\gamma$ and $f|_k\gamma$ is the weight $k$ slash-action. The degree of $P$ is called the depth of $f$.

An example of a quasi-modular form is the Eisenstein series $E_2(z)=1-24\sum_{n\geq1}\sigma_1(n)q^n$, where $q=e^{2\pi iz}$ and $\sigma_1$ is a divisor function. It has weight $2$ and depth $1$ on $\Gamma$ and it has the following transformation property: \[ E_2(\gamma z)=(cz+d)^2E_2(z)-\frac{6i}{\pi}c(cz+d). \]
