Abstract
Let $M\left(q\right)\text{=}\sum {\text{c(n)q}}^{n}$ be one of Ramanujan’s mock theta functions. We establish the existence of infinitely many linear congruences of the form: $c(An\text{}+\text{}B\text{)}\equiv \text{0(mod}{l}^{j}\text{)}$ where A is a multiple of l and an auxiliary prime, p. Moreover, we give an effectively computable upper bound on the smallest such p for which these congruences hold. The effective nature of our results is based on the prior works of Lichtenstein [1] and Treneer [2].Keywords:
mock theta functions; congruences; harmonic weak Maass forms
