Abstract: Let M(q) = 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 + B) 0 (mod l j ) 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
