The Minkowski question mark function F(x) arises as a real distribution function of rationals in the Farey (alias, Stern-Brocot or Calkin-Wilf) tree. In this thesis we introduce its three natural integral transforms: the dyadic period function G(z), defined in the cut plane; the dyadic zeta function zeta_M(s), which is an entire function; the characteristic function m(t), which is an entire function as well. Each of them is a unique object, and is characterized by regularity properties and a functional equation, which reformulates in its own terms the functional equation for F(x). We study the interrelations among these three objects and F(x). It appears that the theory is completely parallel to the one for Maass wave forms for PSL_2(Z). One of the main purposes of this thesis is to clarify the nature of moments of the Minkowski question mark function.
