On Kaneko Congruences

  title={On Kaneko Congruences},
  author={X. W. C. Faber},
We present a proof of certain congruences modulo powers of an odd prime for the coefficients of a series produced by repeated application of U -operator to a certain weakly holomorphic modular form. This kind of congruences were first observed by Kaneko as a result of numerical experiments, and later proved in a different (but similar) case by Guerzhoy [6]. It is interesting to note that, in our case, the congruences become different, both experimentally and theoretically, depending on whether… CONTINUE READING
