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.
