Quantum modularity of mock theta functions of order 2

Main Article Content

Soon-Yi Kang


In [9], we computed shadows of the second order mock theta functions and showed that they are essentially same with the shadow of a mock theta function related to the Mathieu moonshine phenomenon. In this paper, we further survey the second order mock theta functions on their quantum modularity and their behavior in the lower half plane.
