Abstract: Following Ramanujan's work on modular equations and approximations of π, there are formulas for 1/π of the form Following Ramanujan's work on modular equations and approximations of π, there are formulas for 1/π of the form k = 0 ( 1 2 ) k ( 1 d ) k ( d - 1 d ) k k ! 3 ( a k + 1 ) ( λ d ) k = δ π for d=2,3,4,6, where łd are singular values that correspond to elliptic curves with complex multiplication, and a,δ are explicit algebraic numbers. In this paper we prove a p-adic version of this formula in terms of the so-called Ramanujan type congruence. In addition, we obtain a new supercongruence result for elliptic curves with complex multiplication.
Keywords: Ramanujan type supercongruences; Atkin and Swinnerton-Dyer congruences; hypergeometric series; elliptic curves; complex multiplication; periods; modular forms; Picard–Fuchs equation
