  • Note on a theorem of Farkas and Kra
    Ramanujan J. (IF 0.79) Pub Date : 2020-08-04
    Kazuhide Matsuda

    In this paper, we focus on applications of high-level versions of Jacobi’s derivative formula to number theory, such as quaternary quadratic forms and convolution sums of some arithmetical functions.

  • Some results on divisor problems related to cusp forms
    Ramanujan J. (IF 0.79) Pub Date : 2020-08-04
    Wei Zhang

    Let \(\lambda _{f}(n)\) be the normalized Fourier coefficients of a holomorphic Hecke cusp form of full level. We study a generalized divisor problem with \(\lambda _{f}(n)\) over some special sequences. More precisely, for any fixed integer \(k\ge 2\) and \(j\in \{1,2,3,4\},\) we are interested in the following sums $$\begin{aligned} S_{k}(x,j):=\sum _{n\le x}\lambda _{k,f}(n^{j})=\sum _{n\le x}\sum

  • Highly composite polynomials and the maximum order of the divisor function in $$\pmb {\mathbb {F}}_q[t]$$ F q [ t ]

    We investigate the analogues, in \(\mathbb {F}_q[t]\), of highly composite numbers and the maximum order of the divisor function, as studied by Ramanujan. In particular, we determine a family of highly composite polynomials which is not too sparse, and we use it to compute the logarithm of the maximum of the divisor function at every degree up to an error of a constant, which is significantly smaller

We prove an inequality for the modified Selberg zeta-function in a different way, reproving and extending the result of Garunkštis and Grigutis and completing the extension of a result of Belovas and Sakalauskas.

    Let \(W,W'\subseteq G\) be non-empty subsets in an arbitrary group G. The set \(W'\) is said to be a complement to W if \(W\cdot W'=G\) and it is minimal if no proper subset of \(W'\) is a complement to W. We show that, if W is finite then every complement of W has a minimal complement, answering a problem of Nathanson. This also shows the existence of minimal r-nets for every \(r\geqslant 0\) in finitely

  • A complete generalization of Göllnitz’s “big” theorem
    Ramanujan J. (IF 0.79) Pub Date : 2020-07-20
    Terence Coelho, Jongwon Kim, Matthew C. Russell

    In the spirit of Göllnitz’s “big” partition theorem of 1967, we present a new mod-6 partition identity. Alladi et al. provided a four-parameter refinement of Göllnitz’s big theorem in 1995 via a key identity of generating functions and the method of weighted words. By means of this technique, two similar mod-6 identities of this type were discovered—one by Alladi in 1999 and one by Alladi and Andrews

  • On the zeros of certain composite polynomials and an operator preserving inequalities

    If all the zeros of nth degree polynomials f(z) and \(g(z) = \sum _{k=0}^{n}\lambda _k\left( {\begin{array}{c}n\\ k\end{array}}\right) z^k\) respectively lie in the cricular regions \(|z|\le r\) and \(|z| \le s|z-\sigma |\), \(s>0\), then it was proved by Marden (Geometry of polynomials, Math Surveys, No. 3, American Mathematical Society, Providence, 1949, p. 86) that all the zeros of the polynomial

    Let \(\lambda _f (n)\) denote the normalized n-th Fourier coefficient of a holomorphic Hecke eigencuspform or a Hecke–Maass cusp form for the full modular group. In this paper we shall exhibit cancellations in the following sum: $$\begin{aligned} \sum _{N

    Let \(k\in \mathbb {N}_{\ge 2}\) and for given \(m\in \mathbb {Z}{\setminus }\{0\}\) consider the sequence \((S_{k,m}(n))_{n\in \mathbb {N}}\) defined by the power series expansion $$\begin{aligned} \frac{1}{(1-x)^{m}}\prod _{i=0}^{\infty } \frac{1}{(1-x^{k^{i}})^{m(k-1)}}=\sum _{n=0}^{\infty }S_{k,m}(n)x^{n}. \end{aligned}$$ The number \(S_{k,m}(n)\) for \(m\in \mathbb {N}_{+}\) has a natural combinatorial

  • Exceptional set for sums of unlike powers of primes (II)
    Ramanujan J. (IF 0.79) Pub Date : 2020-07-18
    Min Zhang, Jinjiang Li

    Let N be a sufficiently large integer. In this paper, it is proved that, with at most \(O(N^{7/18+\varepsilon })\) exceptions, all even positive integers up to N can be represented in the form \(p_1^2+p_2^2+p_3^3+p_4^3+p_5^4+p_6^4\), where \(p_1,p_2,p_3,p_4,p_5,p_6\) are prime numbers, which constitutes an improvement over some previous work.

  • Lacunary eta-quotients modulo powers of primes
    Ramanujan J. (IF 0.79) Pub Date : 2020-07-18
    Tessa Cotron, Anya Michaelsen, Emily Stamm, Weitao Zhu

    An integral power series is called lacunary modulo M if almost all of its coefficients are divisible by M. Motivated by the parity problem for the partition function, Gordon and Ono studied the generating functions for t-regular partitions, and determined conditions for when these functions are lacunary modulo powers of primes. We generalize their results in a number of ways by studying infinite products

  • The Burgess bound via a trivial delta method

    Keshav Aggarwal, Roman Holowinsky, Yongxiao Lin, Qingfeng Sun

    Let g be a fixed Hecke cusp form for \(\mathrm SL(2,{\mathbb {Z}})\) and \(\chi \) be a primitive Dirichlet character of conductor M. The best known subconvex bound for \(L(1/2,g\otimes \chi )\) is of Burgess strength. The bound was proved by a couple of methods: shifted convolution sums and the Petersson/Kuznetsov formula analysis. It is natural to ask what inputs are really needed to prove a Burgess-type

    For the very well-poised \(\Omega \)-series, a universal iteration pattern is established that yields numerous infinite series identities including several important ones discovered by Ramanujan (in Q J Pure Appl Math 45:350–372, 1914) and recently by Guillera.

    In this paper, we apply Qin’s theorem for the 4-rank of \(K_2O_F\) to establish the relation between the 4-rank of the ideal class group of \(F=\mathbb {Q}(\sqrt{d})\) and the 4-rank of \(K_2O_F\) provided that all odd prime factors of d are congruent to 1 mod 8. As an application, we give a concise and unified proof of two conjectures proposed by Conner and Hurrelbrink (Acta Arith 73:59–65, 1995)

  • Arithmetic behaviour of Hecke eigenvalues of Siegel cusp forms of degree two

    Let F and G be Siegel cusp forms for \({\mathrm{Sp}}_4({{\mathbb {Z}}})\) and weights \(k_1, k_2\), respectively. Also let F and G be Hecke eigenforms lying in distinct eigen spaces. Further suppose that neither F nor G is a Saito–Kurokawa lift. In this article, we study simultaneous arithmetic behaviour of Hecke eigenvalues of these Hecke eigenforms.

    In the present note, we prove new lower bounds on large values of character sums \(\varDelta (x,q):=\max _{\chi \ne \chi _0} \big \vert \sum _{n\le x} \chi (n)\big \vert \) in certain ranges of x. Employing an implementation of the resonance method developed in a work involving the author in order to exhibit large values of L-functions, we improve some results of Hough in the range \(\log x = o\big

    In this paper, we use combinatorial group theory and a limiting process to connect various types of hypergeometric series, and of relations among such series. We begin with a set S of 56 distinct translates of a certain function M, which takes the form of a Barnes integral, and is expressible as a sum of two very-well-poised \(_9F_8\) hypergeometric series of unit argument. We consider a known, transitive

    Recently, Lin and Wang introduced two special partition functions \(RG_1(n)\) and \(RG_2(n)\), the generating functions of which are the reciprocals of two identities due to Ramanujan and Gordon. They established several congruences modulo 5 and 7 for \(RG_1(n)\) and \(RG_2(n)\) and posed four conjectures on congruences modulo 25 for \(RG_1(n)\) and \(RG_2(n)\) at the end of their paper.

    In terms of Dougall’s \(_2H_2\) series identity and the series rearrangement method, we establish a symmetric formula for hypergeometric series. Then it is utilized to derive a known nonterminating form of Saalschütz’s theorem. Similarly, we also show that Bailey’s \(_6\psi _6\) series identity implies the nonterminating form of Jackson’s \(_8\phi _7\) summation formula. Considering the reversibility
