Abstract

We show the modular properties of the multiple ‘‘elliptic’’ gamma functions, which are anextension of those of the theta function and the elliptic gamma function. The modularproperty of the theta function is known as Jacobi’s transformation, and that of the ellipticgamma function was provided by Felder and Varchenko. In this paper, we deal with themultiple sine functions, since the modular properties of the multiple elliptic gamma functionsresult from the equivalence between two ways to represent the multiple sine functions asinﬁnite products.We also derive integral representations of the multiple sine functions and the multipleelliptic gamma functions. We introduce correspondences between the multiple elliptic gammafunctions and the multiple sine functions.

The elliptic gamma function was originally constructed by Ruijsenaars[10]as aunique solution of difference equations which include the theta function as above.After his work, Felder and Varchenko[3]derived the ‘‘modular property’’ of thisfunction,

The multiple Bernoulli polynomials are attached to the multiple zeta functionsand the multiple gamma functions as in[1,11].We introduce integral representations and inﬁnite product representations of themultiple sine functions. Then it is shown that there are two ways to represent them asan inﬁnite product. From the equivalence between them, the modular properties of

Then in Section 4, we introduce the integralrepresentations and the inﬁnite product representations of the multiple sinefunctions. In Section 5, we prove the modular properties of the multiple ellipticgamma functions. In Section 6, we introduce the integral representations of the
