# On the seventh order mock theta functions

@article{Hickerson1988OnTS, title={On the seventh order mock theta functions}, author={Dean R. Hickerson}, journal={Inventiones mathematicae}, year={1988}, volume={94}, pages={661-677} }

In a recent paper [H], we proved the "Mock Theta Conjectures". These are identities, stated by Ramanujan in his "lost notebook" JR2, pp. 19-20], involving two of the 5th order mock 0-functions. In fact, Ramanujan gave one such identity for each of the ten 5th order functions; as shown in [A-G1], these ten identities are all equivalent to the two proved in I-HI. In this paper, we prove the corresponding identities for Ramanujan's 7th order mock 0-functions, and show how they are related to rank…
