Quantum modular forms and Hecke operators
- 51 Downloads
It is known that there are one-to-one correspondences among the space of cusp forms, the space of homogeneous period polynomials and the space of Dedekind symbols with polynomial reciprocity laws. We add one more space, the space of quantum modular forms with polynomial period functions, to extend results from Fukuhara. Also, we consider Hecke operators on the space of quantum modular forms and construct new quantum modular forms.
