# Modular Equations and Discrete, Genus-Zero Subgroups of $\SL(2,\mathbb{R})$ Containing $\Gamma(N)$

Let $G$ be a discrete subgroup of $\SL(2,\R)$ which contains $\Gamma(N)$ for some $N$. If the genus of $X(G)$ is zero, then there is a unique normalised generator of the field of $G$-automorphic functions which is known as a normalised Hauptmodul. This paper gives a characterisation of normalised Hauptmoduls as formal $q$ series using modular polynomials.
