Abstract

We first derive some modular equations of degrees 3 and 9 and present their concise proofs based on algebraic computations. We then use these modular equations to establish explicit relations and formulas for the parameterizations for the theta functions ${\varphi}$ and ${\psi}$ In addition, we find specific values of the parameterizations to evaluate some numerical values of the cubic continued fraction.

Keywords

theta functions;modular equations;continued fractions
