A modularinvariant modified Weierstrass sigmafunction as a building block for lowestLandaulevel wavefunctions on the torus
Abstract
A “modified” variant of the Weierstrass sigma, zeta, and elliptic functions is proposed whereby the zeta function is redefined by $$ζ(z) \mapsto \tilde{ζ}(z) ≡ ζ(z)  γ_2z$$, where γ_{2} is a lattice invariant related to the almostholomorphic modular invariant of the quasimodularinvariant weight2 Eisenstein series. If ω_{i} is a primitive halfperiod, $$\tilde{ζ}(ω_i) = πω^{*}_{i}/A$$, where A is the area of the primitive cell of the lattice. The quasiperiodicity of the modified sigma function is much simpler than that of the original, and it becomes the buildingblock for the modularinvariant formulation of lowestLandaulevel wavefunctions on the torus. It is suggested that the “modified” sigma function is more natural than the original Weierstrass form, which was formulated before quasimodular forms were understood. Finally, for the highsymmetry (square and hexagonal) lattices, the modified and original sigma functions coincide.
