Multiple zeta values and their q-analogues

  title={Multiple zeta values and their q-analogues},
  author={A. Vleeshouwers},
  journal={arXiv: Number Theory},
We explore the theory of multiple zeta values (MZVs) and some of their $q$-generalisations. Multiple zeta values are numerical quantities that satisfy several combinatorial relations over the rationals. These relations include two multiplicative relations, which arise naturally from comparison of the MZVs with an underlying algebraic structure. We generalise these concepts by introducing the parameter $q$ in such a way that as $q\to 1^-$ we return to the ordinary MZVs. Our special interest lies… Expand

Multiple $q$-zeta brackets
The multiple zeta values (MZVs) possess a rich algebraic structure of algebraic relations, which is conjecturally determined by two different (shuffle and stuffle) products of a certain algebra ofExpand
The algebra of bi-brackets and regularized multiple Eisenstein series
We study the algebra of certain $q$-series, called bi-brackets, whose coefficients are given by weighted sums over partitions. These series incorporate the theory of modular forms for the fullExpand
Combinatorial relations for Euler-Zagier sums
where the sum is over n-tuples of positive integers. These sums were introduced in [8] and [15] independently, but their origins go back to Euler. He investigated the properties of ζ(k1, k2) andExpand
A new proof of the duality of multiple zeta values and its generalizations
We give a new proof of the duality of multiple zeta values, which makes no use of the iterated integrals. The same method is also applicable to Ohno’s relation for ([Formula: see text]-)multiple zetaExpand

This work is an example driven overview article of recent works on the connection of multiple zeta values, modular forms and q-analogues of multiple zeta values given by multiple Eisenstein series.
The algebra of generating functions for multiple divisor sums and applications to multiple zeta values
We study the algebra $${{\mathrm{{\mathcal {MD}}}}}$$MD of generating functions for multiple divisor sums and its connections to multiple zeta values. The generating functions for multiple divisorExpand
