Ikeda lifts form a distinguished subspace of Siegel modular forms. In this paper we prove several global and local results concerning this space. We find that degenerate principal series representations (for the Siegel parabolic) of the symplectic group Sp2n of even degree satisfy a Hecke duality relation which has applications to Ikeda lifts and leads to converse theorems. Moreover we apply certain differential operators to study pullbacks of Ikeda lifts.
