Computing Riemann Theta Functions B. Deconinck, M. Heil, A.I. Bobenko, M. van Hoeij, M. Schmies
The Riemann theta function is a complex-valued function of $g$ complex variables. It appears in the construction of many (quasi-) periodic solutions of various equations of mathematical physics. In this paper, algorithms for its computation are given. First, a formula is derived allowing the pointwise approximation of Riemann theta functions, with arbitrary, user-specified precision. This formula is used to construct a uniform approximation formula, again with arbitrary precision.
