71 In fact there exists only one even unimodular lattice in R 8 (up to equivalence of lattices). The lattice is the famous E 8 lattice, the root lattice of simple Lie algebra of type E 8 . Fig.2 Here the diagram describes a symmetric matrix as follows. All the diagonal el- ements are equal to 2. If we order the vertices, then the entry a ij is equal to - 1 or 0 dependent on whether the i -th vertex is connected to the j -th vertex or not, respectively. Take n = 16. Since M 4 (Γ(1)) = C E 8 , we obtain, by comparing the constant coefficients, θ L = E 8 / 2 ζ (8) . In particular, we have r L ( m ) = 16 σ 7 ( m ) /B 4 , (7.11) where B 4 is the fourth Bernoulli number (see Lecture 6). There exist two even uni- modular lattices in R 16 . One is E 8 E 8 . Another is Γ 16 defined by the following graph: Fig.3 Now let n = 24. The space M 6 (Γ(1)) is spanned by Δ and

Unformatted text preview: E 12 . We can write L = 1 2 (12) E 12 + c L . This gives r L ( m ) = 65520 691 11 ( m ) + c L ( m ) , (7.12) where ( m ) is the Ramanujan function (the coecient at q m in ). Setting m = 1, we get c L = r L (1)-65520 691 . (7.13) Clearly, c L 6 = 0. Except obvious examples E 8 E 8 E 8 or E 8 16 there are 22 more even uni-modular lattices of rank 24. One of them is the Leech lattice . It diers from any other lattice by the property that r (1) = 0. So, r L ( m ) = 65520 691 ( 11 ( m )- ( m )) , (7.14) In particular, we see that ( m ) 11 ( m ) mod 691 . This is one of the numerous congruences satised by the Ramanujan function ( m )....
