Abstract

In his last letter to Hardy, Ramanujan defined 17 functions $F(q)$, where $|q|<1$. He called them mock theta functions, because as $q$ radially approaches any point $e^{2\pi ir}$ ($r$ rational), there is a theta function $F_r(q)$ with $F(q)-F_r(q)=O(1)$. In this paper we establish the relationship between two families of mock theta functions.
