On multiple series of Eisenstein type
- 189 Downloads
The aim of this paper is to study certain multiple series which can be regarded as multiple analogues of Eisenstein series. As part of a prior research, the second-named author considered double analogues of Eisenstein series and expressed them as polynomials in terms of ordinary Eisenstein series. This fact was derived from the analytic observation of infinite series involving hyperbolic functions which were based on the study of Cauchy, and also Ramanujan. In this paper, we prove an explicit relation formula among these series. This gives an alternative proof of this fact by using the technique of partial fraction decompositions of multiple series which was introduced by Gangl, Kaneko and Zagier. By the same method, we further show a certain multiple analogue of this fact and give some examples of explicit formulas. Finally we give several remarks about the relation between the results of the present and the previous works for infinite series involving hyperbolic functions.
