Paper submitted to arXiv

In this paper we argue that in the context of geometric quantization holomorphic part of zero-mode wave function in abelian Chern-Simons theory on the torus can be considered as modular forms of weight two. Part of the arguments are made possible by imposing gauge invariance on the zero-mode wave function where gauge transformations are induced by modular transformations of the zero-mode variable.

Visit Asahikawa

Our family trip this summer was to Hokkaido. Asahiyama zoo was one of the main destinations formally but my personal plan in Asahikawa was to hike Mt. Asahi-dake and then to visit two literary museums in memory of Ayako Miura and Yasushi Inoue. The museums were both a lot greater than I had expected and I could not find enough time to enjoy the exhibition.
