Elliptic curves, eta-quotients and hypergeometric functions

David Pathakjee, Zef RosnBrick and Eugene Yoong

Vol. 5 (2012), No. 1, 1–8

The well-known fact that all elliptic curves are modular, proven by Wiles, Taylor, Breuil, Conrad and Diamond, leaves open the question whether there exists a nice representation of the modular form associated to each elliptic curve. Here we provide explicit representations of the modular forms associated to certain Legendre form elliptic curves 2E1(λ) as linear combinations of quotients of Dedekind’s eta-function. We also give congruences for some of the modular forms’ coefficients in terms of Gaussian hypergeometric functions.
