On Ramanujan's cubic continued fraction as a modular function
We first extend the results of Chan and Baruah on the modular equations of Ramanujan's cubic continued fraction $C(\tau)$ to all primes $p$ by finding the affine models of modular curves and then derive Kronecker's congruence relations for these modular equations. We further show that by its singular values we can generate ray class fields modulo 6 over imaginary quadratic fields and find their class polynomials after proving that $1/C(\tau)$ is an algebraic integer.
