McKean and Moll have written the nice book Elliptic Curves: Function Theory, Geometry, Arithmetic that cleanly illustrates the connection between elliptic curves and elliptic/modular functions. If you haven't seen the book already, you should. As for elliptic functions proper, my suggested books tend to be a bit on the old side, so pardon me if I don't know the newer treatments. Elliptic Functions: A Primer defines and describes what is an elliptic function, attempts to have a more elementary approach to them, and drastically reduce the complications of its classic formulae; from which the book proceeds to a more detailed study of the subject while being reasonably complete in itself. with particular emphasis on transcendence, algebraic independence and measures of the algebraic independence of numbers connected with exponential and elliptic functions. Special sections of the Introduction are devoted to period relations for Abelian varieties of CM-type, the author's results on the Schanuel conjecture. In complex analysis, an elliptic function is a meromorphic function that is periodic in two directions. Just as a periodic function of a real variable is defined by its values on an interval, an elliptic function is determined by its values on a fundamental parallelogram, which then repeat in a okto-atelier.com a doubly periodic function cannot be holomorphic, as it would then be a bounded entire.

Elliptic Functions A.1 Apology The excuse for these notes is the need I felt to collect together a concise number of formulae for elliptic functions in one coherent notation and from one constructive point of view. The idea is as much as possible to try to derive all possible identities from one single formula, or. We survey transcendence theory of values of elliptic functions in Section 3, linear independence in Section 4, and algebraic independence in Section 5. This splitting is somewhat artificial but convenient.

Elliptic functions parametrize elliptic curves, and the intermingling of the analytic and algebraic-arithmetic theory has been at the center of mathematics since the early part of the nineteenth century. The book is divided into four parts. In the first, Lang presents the . Jan 25,  · Free kindle book and epub digitized and proofread by Project Gutenberg.

In his book "Elements of the Theory of Elliptic Functions", page 44, Akhiezer proves, that any two elliptic functions with the same periods are connected by . Sep 25,  · Coverage of advanced topics: These include transcendental values of the following: elliptic functions, the j-function, modular forms, class group L-functions, and elliptic integrals. Transcendental results on both individual numbers as well as independence are presented.

Transcendence properties of modular functions have been studied by using their relations with periods of elliptic integrals; and untilall results about these modular functions were. elliptic integrals of the second kind, Weierstrass zeta function and extensions of an elliptic curve by G a.

He applies the so{called Schneider{Lang criterion to the Weierstrass elliptic and zeta functions and deduces the transcendence results due to Th.

Schneider on elliptic integrals of the rst and second kind. This introduction to the Jacobi elliptic, sn, cn, dn and related functions is parallel to the usual development of trigonometric functions, except that the unit circle is replaced by an ellipse.

These functions satisfy nonlinear differential equations that appear often in physical applications, for instance in particle mechanics. First we brieﬂy recall some of the basic transcendence results related to the exponential function (Section 1).

Next, in Section 2, we survey the main properties of elliptic functions that are involved in transcendence theory. We survey transcendence theory of values of elliptic functions Cited by: 8.

(1− t 2)(1− k2t) While there are 12 diﬀerent types of Jacobian elliptic functions based on the number of poles and the upper limit on the elliptic integral, the three most popular are the copolar trio of sine.

elliptic functions are required to prove transcendence results and get a better understanding of the situation.

We will rst review the historical development of the theory, which started in the rst part of the 19th century in parallel with the development of the theory related to values of the exponential function.

Next we will deal with. We survey transcendence theory of values of elliptic functions in Section 3, linear independence in Section 4, and algebraic independence in Section 5. This splitting is somewhat artificial but convenient.

Moreover, we restrict ourselves to elliptic functions, even when many results are only special cases of statements valid for abelian functions.

Sep 28,  · In its first six chapters this text seeks to present the basic ideas and properties of the Jacobi elliptic functions as an historical essay, an attempt to answer the fascinating question: 'what would the treatment of elliptic functions have been like if Abel had developed the ideas, rather than Jacobi?' Accordingly, it is based on the idea of inverting integrals which arise in the theory 3/5(2).

In its first six chapters this text seeks to present the basic ideas and properties of the Jacobi elliptic functions as an historical essay, an attempt to answer the fascinating question: 'what would the treatment of elliptic functions have been like if Abel had developed the ideas, rather than Jacobi?'Cited by: The subject matter of this book formed the substance of a mathematical se am which was worked by many of the great mathematicians of the last century.

The mining metaphor is here very appropriate, for the analytical tools perfected by Cauchy permitted the mathematical argument to penetra te to Weierstrass’s Elliptic Function.
