Title:Radial Limits of a Universal Mock Theta Function
Seminar:Combinatorics/Partitions Seminar
Speaker:Steffen Lobrich
In his last letter to Hardy, Ramanujan provided 17 examples for what he called a "mock theta function". These are given by q-hypergeometric series that have the same growth behavior as classical modular forms as one radially approaches roots of unity from within the unit disc. We find explicit formulas for radial limits of a universal mock theta function that can express all of Ramanujan's examples.
