The theta-functions package

[Tags:library, public-domain]

Small and simple library for computing values of Theta functions. They're the special functions of two variables. Described very well at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theta_function. Library exports four theta-functions and a small helper to calculate their second parameter. Theta functions are functions of Complex variables, FYI.

theta-functions

Implementation of theta-functions using trigonometric series.

They're the special functions of two variables. Described very well at Wikipedia article.

Library exports four theta-functions and a small helper to calculate their second parameter.

Theta functions are functions of Complex variables, FYI.

Interface summary

thetaN n q u

where N is a number from 1 to 4, n is a quantization factor, q is a theta-functions special parameter, and u is an actual argument of function.

Parameter q should be calculated with the helper function qpar, which accepts real numbers as argument:

qpar tau

qpar itself returns Complex value. This helper is used to draw the library closer to the definition of theta-functions provided in the books.

Constraints

Never call theta1..4 with u > pi. Theta-functions are raising very rapidly (maybe it's because of trigonometric series representing them), so with large values of argument they overflow badly and return incorrect results.
