. There are three modular forms a(q), b(q), c(q) involved in the parametrization of the hypergeometric function 2 F 1 ( 1 3 ; 2 3 1 ; \Delta) analogous to the classical ` 2 (q), ` 3 (q), ` 4 (q) and the hypergeometric function 2 F 1 ( 1 2 ; 1 2 1 ; \Delta). We give elliptic function generalizations of a(q), b(q), c(q) analogous to the classical thetafunction `(z; q). A number of identities are proved. The proofs are selfcontained, relying on nothing more than the Jacobi triple product identity. The second author completed this research while an NSERC International Fellow at Dalhousie.

The paper classifies algebraic transformations of Gauss hypergeometric functions and pullback transformations between hypergeometric differential equations. This classification recovers the classical transformations of degree 2, 3, 4, 6, and finds other transformations of some special classes of the Gauss hypergeometric function.
New 5F4 hypergeometric transformations, threevariable Mahler measures, and formulas for 1/π
 Ramanujan J
"... New relations are established between families of threevariable Mahler measures. Those identities are then expressed as transformations for the 5F4 hypergeometric function. We use these results to obtain two explicit 5F4 evaluations, and several new formulas for 1/π. MSC: 33C20, 33C05, 11F66 1 ..."

In geometric function theory, generalized elliptic integrals and functions arise from the SchwarzChristoffel transformation of the upper halfplane onto a parallelogram and are naturally related to Gaussian hypergeometric functions. Certain combinations of these integrals also occur in analytic number theory in the study of Ramanujan’s modular equations and approximations to π. The authors study the monotoneity and convexity properties of these quantities and obtain sharp inequalities for them. 1. Introduction. In 1995 B. Berndt, S. Bhargava, and F. Garvan published an important paper [BBG] in which they studied generalized modular equations and gave proofs for numerous statements concerning these equations made by Ramanujan in his unpublished notebooks. No record of Ramanujan’s original

. In his lost notebook, Ramanujan recorded certain identities involving integrals of theta functions. Some identities are proved by using identities relating theta functions and Lambert series. Two identities give integral representations for the RogersRamanujan continued fraction. 1. Introduction On pages 207 and 46 in his lost notebook [9], Ramanujan recorded eight identities involving integrals of theta functions. Two of these give integral representations for the RogersRamanujan continued fraction, defined by F (q) := 1 1 + q 1 + q 2 1 + q 3 1 + \Delta \Delta \Delta jqj ! 1: More precisely, on page 46, Ramanujan claims that q 1=5 F (q) = p 5 \Gamma 1 2 exp ` \Gamma 1 5 Z 1 q (1 \Gamma t) 5 (1 \Gamma t 2 ) 5 \Delta \Delta \Delta (1 \Gamma t 5 )(1 \Gamma t 10 ) \Delta \Delta \Delta dt t ' = p 5 \Gamma 1 2 \Gamma p 5 1 + 3 + p 5 2 exp ` 1 p 5 Z q 0 (1 \Gamma t) 5 (1 \Gamma t 2 ) 5 \Delta \Delta \Delta (1 \Gamma t 1=5 )(1 \Gamma t ...
