Ramanujan's lost notebook contains many results on mock theta functions. In particular, the lost notebook contains eight identities for tenth order mock theta functions. Previously, the author proved six of the eight tenth order mock theta function identities. It is the purpose of this paper to prove the fifth and sixth identities of Ramanujan's tenth order mock theta functions. The properties of modular forms are used for the proofs of theta function identities. 

Three new identities for the sixth-order mock theta functions

. Ramanujan’s lost notebook contains many mock theta functions and mock theta function identities not mentioned in his last letter to Hardy. For example, we find the four tenth-order mock theta

Ramanujan’s fifth order and tenth order mock theta functions - a generalization

A generalization of Ramanujan’s fifth order and tenth order mock theta functions is given. It is shown that these belong to the family of Fq-functions. Using the properties of Fq-functions,

Modular Transformations of Ramanujan's Tenth Order Mock Theta Functions

The modular transformations of Ramanujan's tenth order mock theta functions are computed, beginning from Choi's Hecke-type identites and using Zwegers' results on indefinite theta series. Explicit

Ramanujan's Mock Theta Functions

In his last letter to G. H. Hardy, S. Ramanujan wrote, ” I discovered very interesting functions recently which I call mock theta functions”. He also gave a long list of ’third order’, ’fifth order’


We have deflned generalized functions which reduce to Ra- manujan's mock theta functions of order ten. We have shown that they are Fq-functions. We have given their integral representation and multi-


ABSTRACT In present paper, we have considered the sixth order Mock theta functions defined by Andrews and Hickerson.We have defined generalized functions which can be reduced to Ramanujan’s Mock

Relations Connecting Eighth Order Mock Theta Functions

Du ring the last years of his life, Ramanujan defined 17 functions F(q), where | q | < 1, and he named them as mock theta functions. The first detailed description of mock theta functions was given

Partial New Mock Theta Functions

By using a simple identity of mine, I have proved sixty identities connecting the mock theta functions of Ramanujan with mock theta functions recently generated by Andrews and Bringmann et al, by

Some Relations on Sixth Order Mock Theta Functions

During the last years of his life, Ramanujan defined 17 functions F(q), where | q | < 1. Ramanujan named them as mock theta functions, because as q radially approaches any point e 2∏iΓ (r rational),

The basic bilateral hypergeometric series and the mock theta functions

S. Ramanujan introduced the mock theta functions in his last letter to G.H. Hardy. In his letter and Lost Notebook, he presented mock theta functions and their identities. The expression of each mock



On the seventh order mock theta functions

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

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
