We obtain four Hecke-type double sums for three of Ramanujan’s third order mock theta functions. We discuss how these four are related to the new mock theta functions of Andrews’ work on q-orthogonal polynomials and Bringmann, Hikami, and Lovejoy’s work on unified Witten–Reshetikhin–Turaev invariants of certain Seifert manifolds. We then prove identities between these new mock theta functions by first expressing them in terms of the universal mock theta function. 

Universal mock theta functions and two-variable Hecke–Rogers identities

We obtain two-variable Hecke–Rogers identities for three universal mock theta functions. This implies that many of Ramanujan’s mock theta functions, including all the third-order functions, have a


In this paper, we first give some representations for four new mock theta functions defined by Andrews [1] and Bringmann, Hikami and Lovejoy [5] using divisor sums. Then, some transformation and

Fifth Order Mock Theta Functions: Proof of the Mock Theta Conjectures

In Chapter 3, Section 3.1, we defined Ramanujan’s ten fifth order mock theta functions, and in Chapter 5 we stated the ten mock theta conjectures. The point of the latter chapter was to reveal that

Ramanujan’s 1ψ1 summation, Hecke-type double sums, and Appell–Lerch sums

We use a specialization of Ramanujan’s 1ψ1 summation to give a new proof of a recent formula of Hickerson and Mortenson which expands a special family of Hecke-type double sums in terms of

Hecke-type formulas for families of unified Witten-Reshetikhin-Turaev invariants

Every closed orientable 3-manifold can be constructed by surgery on a link in S. In the case of surgery along a torus knot, one obtains a Seifert fibered manifold. In this paper we consider three


In 1991, Andrews and Hickerson established a new Bailey pair and combined it with the constant term method to prove some results related to sixth-order mock theta functions. In this paper, we study


Using a result of Warnaar, we prove a number of single- and multi-sum identities in the spirit of Ramanujan’s partial theta identities, but with partial indefinite binary theta functions in the role

Representations of mock theta functions

Motivated by the works of Liu, we provide a unified approach to find Appell-Lerch series and Hecke-type series representations for mock theta functions. We establish a number of parameterized



The fifth and seventh order mock theta functions

. The theory of Bailey chains is extended to yield identities for Hecke type modular forms and related generalizations. The extended results allow us to produce Hecke type series for the fifth and

Hecke‐type double sums, Appell–Lerch sums, and mock theta functions, I

By introducing a dual notion between partial theta functions and Appell–Lerch sums, we find and prove a formula which expresses Hecke‐type double sums in terms of Appell–Lerch sums. Not only does our

q-Orthogonal polynomials, Rogers-Ramanujan identities, and mock theta functions

In this paper, we examine the role that q-orthogonal polynomials can play in the application of Bailey pairs. The use of specializations of q-orthogonal polynomials reveals new instances of mock

Mock Theta Functions

The mock theta functions were invented by the Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan, who lived from 1887 until 1920. He discovered them shortly before his death. In this dissertation, I consider

Ramanujan's Lost Notebook: Part I

In the spring of 1976, George Andrews of Pennsylvania State University visited the library at Trinity College, Cambridge, to examine the papers of the late G.N. Watson. Among these papers, Andrews
