j-invariant and Borcherds Phi-function (Japanese)
[ Abstract ]
The j-invariant is a modular function on the complex upper half plane inducing an isomorphism between the moduli space of elliptic curves and the complex plane. Besides the j-invariant itself, the difference of j-invariants has also attracted some mathematicians. In this talk, I will explain a factorization of the difference of j-invariants in terms of Borcherds Phi-function, the automorphic form on the period domain for Enriques surfaces characterizing the discriminant divisor. This is a joint work with Shu Kawaguchi and Shigeru Mukai.
