Korean Math. Soc. 2012 Vol. 49, No. 4, 693-704 https://doi.org/10.4134/BKMS.2012.49.4.693Published online July 1, 2012 Daeyeoul Kim and Min-Soo Kim National Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Kyungnam University Abstract : We consider Weierstrass functions and divisor functions arising from $q$-series. Using these we can obtain new identities for divisor functions. Farkas  provided a relation between the sums of divisors satisfying congruence conditions and the sums of numbers of divisors satisfying congruence conditions. In the proof he took logarithmic derivative to theta functions and used the heat equation. In this note, however, we obtain a similar result by differentiating further. For any $n \geq 1$, we have $$k \cdot \tau_{2; k, l} (n) = 2 n \cdot E_{\frac{k-l}{2}}(n;k) + l \cdot \tau_{1; k, l} (n) + 2 k \cdot \sum_{j=1}^{n-1} E_{\frac{k-l}{2}}(j;k) \tau_{1; k, l}(n-j).$$ Finally, we shall give a table for $E_1 (N;3),\sigma(N),\tau_{1;3,1}(N)$ and $\tau_{2;3,1}(N)$ $(1\leq N\leq 50)$ and state simulation results for them.
