4. Specific functions

    1. Problem 4.1.

      Can we calculate the leading terms of $F_g^B(q)$ at the orbifold point $z=0$ of the quintic \[ (\sum x_i^5 + z \prod x_i =0 )/ \mathbb{Z}_5^3? \]
        •     Here $h_m$ is the $m$-th Hurwitz class number, i.e. the number of equivalence classes of positive definite binary quadratic forms of discriminant $-m$ with the class containing $x^2+y^2$ weighted by 1/2 and the class containing $x^2 + xy + y^2$ weighted by 1/3. Moreover by convention $h_0=-1/12.$

          Problem 4.2.

          Do the coefficients of $h_m$ have enumerative significance? Can we find $h_m$ for $m \geq 9$?
            • Problem 4.3.

              Does $F= \sum f_g(\tau)\lambda^{2g-2}$ have transformation properties with respect to $\lambda$?
                • Problem 4.4.

                  Is $\sum \frac{(5n)!}{(n!)^5}z^n$ related to (non-holomorphic) forms? Is it related to automorphic objects? Do other solutions to the Picard-Fuchs equation have modular properties?
