Some Nonlinear Identities for Divisor Functions
In his 1916 paper, Ramanujan derived a series of nonlinear identities for a class of divisor functions. We now know that these identities arise as a consequence of the low dimension of certain spaces of modular forms. In this chapter, we explain these identities as well as indicate the relation to the theory of quasi-modular forms.
