Algebraic Properties of the Modular Lambda Function

  • O. I. GritsenkoEmail author


Some properties of the modular lambda function that are similar to those of the modular invariant functions are proved. An algorithm for constructing the minimal polynomial for the values of the lambda function at the points of imaginary quadratic fields is presented; the numbers conjugate to these values are given.
