Modular discriminant, real part, as function of nome. (600x600 pixels)

Detailed description[edit]

This image shows the real part of the modular discriminant as a function of the square of the nome on the unit disk |q| < 1. That is, runs from 0 to along the edge of the disk. Black areas indicate regions where the real part is zero or negative; blue/green areas where the value is small and positive, yellow/red where it is large and positive. The fractal self-similarity of this function is that of the modular group; note that this function is a modular form. Every modular function will have this general kind of self-similarity.

In the above, g2=60 G4 and g3=140 G6 are Weierstrass elliptic functions invarients, whereas is the Dedekind eta function.

See also Image:Gee_three_real.jpeg and Image:Gee_three_imag.jpeg for the real and imaginary parts of g3.

The imaginary part is quite similar. It, and other related images, can be seen at http://www.linas.org/art-gallery/numberetic/numberetic.html
