A formula and a congruence for Ramanujan’s τ au -function Academic Article uri icon


  • We determine formulas for Ramanujan's τ-function and for the coefficients of modular forms on Γ 0(2) in terms of finite field 3F 2-hypergeometric functions. Using these formulas we obtain a new congruence of τ(p) (mod 11). ©2005 American Mathematical Society.
