Finite version special case Jacobi triple product formula

In this paper, Shanks uses the following formula: $$\sum_{s=0}^{n-1}q^{s(2n+1)} \times \left( \prod_{k=s+1}^{n} \dfrac{1-q^{2k}}{1-q^{2k-1}}\right) = \sum_{s=1}^{2n} q^{\frac{s(s-1)}{2}}$$ to get a ...

How to generalise the moderate growth condition in theta series?

I am considering the definition of moderate growth in the non-reductive group. (For example, theta series in such automorphic form defined in $N \rtimes G$, where $N$ is an unipotent group and $G$ is ...

Finding order of vanishing for Jacobi Theta function

From Rademacher's book (Topics in Analytic Number Theory) I'm using the functional equation of $\vartheta_2(0|\tau) = 2\sum_{m=0}^\infty q^{\left(m+\frac12\right)^2} = \vartheta_2(\tau)$ and the fact ...

A conjecture about algebraic values of $(-q;\,-q)_\infty/(q;\,q)_\infty$

Recall that $(a;\,q)_\infty$ is the $q$-Pochhammer symbol: $$(a;\,q)_\infty=\prod_{n=0}^\infty(1-a \, q^n).\tag1$$ Its important special case $(q;\,q)_\infty=\prod_{n=1}^\infty(1-q^n)$ is sometimes ...

Triple Petersson Inner Products With Theta Functions

Our current work requires us to bound triple products of the form $$\langle \Im(*)^{\frac{3}{2}}|\theta^3|^2,\mu_j \rangle,$$ where $\langle \cdot, \cdot \rangle$ is the Petersson inner product, ...

Modularity of certain theta series associated to hyperbolic lattice

Let $L$ be an even hyperbolic lattice, i.e. a free $\mathbb{Z}$-module with a non-degenerate inner product $\cdot$ valued in $\mathbb{Z}$ of signature $(1,n)$ such that the norm of every vector is ...

Modular S transformation on higher order $\vartheta$-functions using Poisson summation

I am trying to understand the action of a modular S transformation on a $\vartheta$-function. To do this for the problem I'm considering I first need to understand the following. Given a $\vartheta$-...

What is the $q$-analog of $\Gamma(z)\Gamma(1-z)=\frac\pi{\sin(\pi z)}$?

I would expect the $q$-Gamma function to have the property which would be the $q$-analog of the Euler reflection formula from my question title. More concretely: $\Gamma(z)$ has simple poles at ...
