Abstract

We derive several modular equations and present their proofs based on concise algebraic computations. In addition, we establish explicit relations and formulas for some parameterizations for the theta functions ${\varphi}$ and ${\psi}$ and show some applications of the modular equations to evaluations of the cubic continued fraction and the theta function ${\psi}$.

Keywords

theta functions;modular equations
