About this book

Theta functions were studied extensively by Ramanujan. This book provides a systematic development of Ramanujan’s results and extends them to a general theory. The author’s treatment of the subject is comprehensive, providing a detailed study of theta functions and modular forms for levels up to 12.  Aimed at advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers, the organization, user-friendly presentation, and rich source of examples, lends this book to serve as a useful reference, a pedagogical tool, and a stimulus for further research.

Topics, especially those discussed in the second half of the book, have been the subject of much recent research; many of which are appearing in book form for the first time. Further results are summarized in the numerous exercises at the end of each chapter.

About the authors

Shaun Cooper received a PhD in Mathematics from the University of Wisconsin at Madison in 1995 and has worked at Massey University in New Zealand ever since. He was a visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota for one semester in 2000, and has spent 12 months each at the National University of Singapore (2007/8) and the University of Newcastle, Australia (2015/16). He is the author of approximately 70 refereed journal articles and edited the book Development of Elliptic Functions According to Ramanujan.

Reviews

“This is a big and bountiful book, clearly written as a labor of love, and well worth the effort (both of writing and reading it). The book is pitched at advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals or researchers, and this is entirely consonant with this kind of number theory … . It’s been a long time since I visited this material, but I am very happy to see it again.” (Michael Berg, MAA Reviews, November, 2017)
