|Abstract:||We use the theory of modular functions to give a new proof of a result of P. F. Stiller, which asserts that, if t is a non-constant meromorphic modular function of weight 0 and F is a meromorphic modular form of weight k with respect to a discrete subgroup of SL2(ℝ) commensurable with SL2(ℤ), then F, as a function of t, satisfies a (k + 1)-st order linear differential equation with algebraic functions of t as coefficients. Furthermore, we show that the Schwarzian differential equation for the modular function t can be extracted from any given (k + 1)-st order linear differential equation of this type. One advantage of our approach is that every coefficient in the differential equations can be relatively easily determined.|
