False theta functions and their modularity properties

False theta functions have occured throughout many areas. They lack modular symmetries due to an additional sign-factor.

Jointly with Caner Nazaroglu I overcame this problem and found a modular fromework to understand these functions. This has many applications and in this talk I will discuss some of these for example asymptotics of certain partition statistics.

Unusual hour.
