Title: "A Probabilistic Approach to Some Elliptic Functions"

Abstract:

Dan Romik recently published [1] some unexpected results about

the Taylor coefficients of the Jacobi $\theta_3$ function. I will show

how a probabilistic interpretation of Romik's results allows to

interpret and extend them to the case of the $\theta_3(q)$ function with

arbitrary parameter $q$.

I will also show how some elliptic functions such as Dedekind' eta function appear naturally in some probabilistic contexts.

This is joint work with Tanay Wakhare and Lin Jiu.
