We study the odd prime values of the Ramanujan tau function, which form a thin set of large primes. To this end, we define LR(p,n):=τ(pn−1) and we show that the odd prime values are of the form LR(p,q) where p,q are odd primes. Then we exhibit arithmetical properties and congruences of the LR numbers using more general results on Lucas sequences. Finally, we propose estimations and discuss numerical results on pairs (p,q) for which LR(p,q) is prime.

A natural variant of Lehmer’s conjecture that the Ramanujan τ -function never vanishes asks whether, for any given integer α, there exist any n ∈ Z such that τ(n) = α. A series of recent papers
This note shows that the prime values of the Ramanujan tau function $\tau(n)=\pm p$ misses every prime $p\leq 8.0\times 10^{25}$.
Abstract : Let λ(n) be the nth coefficient of a modular form f(z) = ∑ n≥1 λ(n)q n of weight k ≥ 4, let pm be a prime power, and let ε > 0 be a small number. A pair of completely different
A recent heuristic argument based on basic concepts in spectral analysis showed that the twin prime conjecture and a few other related primes counting problems are valid. A rigorous version of the
The possible values of the nth Fourier coefficients a(n) of some cusp forms f(z) of weight k => 12 are studied in this article. In particular, the values of the tau function are investigated in some

In the spirit of Lehmer's unresolved speculation on the nonvanishing of Ramanujan's tau-function, it is natural to ask whether a fixed integer is a value of $\tau(n)$ or is a Fourier coefficient
where s ∈ C is a complex number in the upper half plane, q = ei2πs, are the topics of many studies. Basic information on modular forms, classified by various parameters such as level N ≥ 1, weight k

We prove a number of results regarding odd values of the Ramanujan $$\tau$$ τ -function. For example, we prove the existence of an effectively computable positive constant $$\kappa$$ κ such that if

Given a commutative ring R with identity, let $$H_R$$HR be the set of sequences of elements in R. We investigate a novel isomorphism between $$(H_R, +)$$(HR,+) and $$(\tilde{H}_R,*)$$(H~R,∗), where
For $m = 3, 4, ...$, let $\lambda_m = 2 \cos \pi/m$, let $G(\lambda_m)$ be a Hecke group, and let $J_m (m = 3, 4, ...$) be a triangle function for $G(\lambda_m)$ such that, when normalized
