Elliptic curves, eta-quotients and hypergeometric functions

##### Abstract

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 ${}_{2}{E}_{1}\left(\lambda \right)$ 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.
