§21.10(ii) Riemann Theta Functions Associated with a Riemann Surface

In addition to evaluating the Fourier series, the main problem here is to compute a Riemann matrix originating from a Riemann surface. Various approaches are considered in the following references:

  • Belokolos et al. (1994, Chapter 5) and references therein. Here the Riemann surface is represented by the action of a Schottky group on a region of the complex plane. The same representation is used in Gianni et al. (1998).

  • Tretkoff and Tretkoff (1984). Here a Hurwitz system is chosen to represent the Riemann surface.

  • Deconinck and van Hoeij (2001). Here a plane algebraic curve representation of the Riemann surface is used.
