Dahmen, Sander R.; Yazdani, Soroosh
Level Lowering Modulo Prime Powers and Twisted Fermat Equations
We discuss a clean level lowering theorem modulo prime powers for weight $2$ cusp forms. Furthermore, we illustrate how this can be used to completely solve certain twisted Fermat equations $ax^n+by^n+cz^n=0$.

Keywords:modular forms, level lowering, Diophantine equations

Non-Existence of Ramanujan Congruences in Modular Forms of Level Four
Ramanujan famously found congruences like $p(5n+4)\equiv 0 \operatorname{mod} 5$ for the partition function. We provide a method to find all simple congruences of this type in the coefficients of the inverse of a modular form on $\Gamma_{1}(4)$ that is non-vanishing on the upper half plane. This is applied to answer open questions about the (non)-existence of congruences in the generating functions for overpartitions, crank differences, and 2-colored $F$-partitions.

Keywords:modular form, Ramanujan congruence, generalized Frobenius partition, overpartition, crank
Categories:11F33, 11P83
