Sławomir Cynk, Duco van Straten Annales Polonici Mathematici MSC: Primary 14J32; Secondary 14G10, 11F23. DOI: 10.4064/ap180608-23-10 Published online: 22 March 2019


We compute numerical approximations of the period integrals for eleven rigid double octic Calabi–Yau threefolds and compare them with the periods of the corresponding weight four cusp forms, finding commensurabilities as expected. These give information on the correspondences of these varieties with the associated Kuga–Sato modular threefolds.
