according as the elements $\begin{bmatrix}a&b\\ c&d\end{bmatrix}$ of $\mathcal{A}$ in (23.15.3) have the respective forms

 23.18.2 $\begin{bmatrix}\mathrm{o}&\mathrm{e}\\ \mathrm{e}&\mathrm{o}\end{bmatrix},$ $\begin{bmatrix}\mathrm{e}&\mathrm{o}\\ \mathrm{o}&\mathrm{e}\end{bmatrix},$ $\begin{bmatrix}\mathrm{o}&\mathrm{e}\\ \mathrm{o}&\mathrm{o}\end{bmatrix},$ $\begin{bmatrix}\mathrm{e}&\mathrm{o}\\ \mathrm{o}&\mathrm{o}\end{bmatrix},$ $\begin{bmatrix}\mathrm{o}&\mathrm{o}\\ \mathrm{e}&\mathrm{o}\end{bmatrix},$ $\begin{bmatrix}\mathrm{o}&\mathrm{o}\\ \mathrm{o}&\mathrm{e}\end{bmatrix}.$ ⓘ Symbols: e: even integers and o: odd integers Permalink: http://dlmf.nist.gov/23.18.E2 Encodings: TeX, TeX, TeX, TeX, TeX, TeX, pMML, pMML, pMML, pMML, pMML, pMML, png, png, png, png, png, png See also: Annotations for §23.18, §23.18 and Ch.23

Here e and o are generic symbols for even and odd integers, respectively. In particular, if $a-1,b,c$, and $d-1$ are all even, then

 23.18.3 $\lambda\left(\mathcal{A}\tau\right)=\lambda\left(\tau\right),$ ⓘ Symbols: $\lambda\left(\NVar{\tau}\right)$: elliptic modular function, $\tau$: complex variable and $\mathcal{A}$: bilinear transformation Permalink: http://dlmf.nist.gov/23.18.E3 Encodings: TeX, pMML, png See also: Annotations for §23.18, §23.18 and Ch.23

and $\lambda\left(\tau\right)$ is a cusp form of level zero for the corresponding subgroup of SL$(2,\mathbb{Z})$.

## Klein’s Complete Invariant

 23.18.4 $J\left(\mathcal{A}\tau\right)=J\left(\tau\right).$ ⓘ Symbols: $J\left(\NVar{\tau}\right)$: Klein’s complete invariant, $\tau$: complex variable and $\mathcal{A}$: bilinear transformation Referenced by: §23.18 Permalink: http://dlmf.nist.gov/23.18.E4 Encodings: TeX, pMML, png See also: Annotations for §23.18, §23.18 and Ch.23

$J\left(\tau\right)$ is a modular form of level zero for SL$(2,\mathbb{Z})$.

## Dedekind’s Eta Function

 23.18.5 $\eta\left(\mathcal{A}\tau\right)=\varepsilon(\mathcal{A})\left(-i(c\tau+d)% \right)^{1/2}\eta\left(\tau\right),$

where the square root has its principal value and

 23.18.6 $\varepsilon(\mathcal{A})=\exp\left(\pi i\left(\frac{a+d}{12c}+s(-d,c)\right)% \right),$
 23.18.7 ${s(d,c)=\sum_{r=1}^{c-1}\frac{r}{c}\left(\frac{dr}{c}-\left\lfloor\frac{dr}{c}% \right\rfloor-\frac{1}{2}\right),}$ $c>0$. ⓘ Symbols: $\left\lfloor\NVar{x}\right\rfloor$: floor of $x$, $\left(\NVar{m},\NVar{n}\right)$: greatest common divisor (gcd), $c$: integer and $d$: integer Referenced by: §23.18, Erratum (V1.0.11) for Equation (23.18.7) Permalink: http://dlmf.nist.gov/23.18.E7 Encodings: TeX, pMML, png Errata (effective with 1.0.11): Originally the sum $\sum_{r=1}^{c-1}$ was written with an additional constraint on the summation, that $\left(r,c\right)=1$. This additional condition was incorrect and has been removed. Reported 2015-10-05 by Howard Cohl and Tanay Wakhare See also: Annotations for §23.18, §23.18 and Ch.23

Here $s(d,c)$ is a Dedekind sum. See (27.14.11), §27.14(iii), §27.14(iv) and Apostol (1990, pp. 48 and 51–53). Note that $\eta\left(\tau\right)$ is of level $\tfrac{1}{2}$.
