Let \Delta(\Lambda_{tau}) = \Delta(\tau} be modular discriminant and \Omega(\tau) = (2\pi)^4\eta(\tau)^8, where \eta(\tau) be Dedekind \eta-function.

(a) \Delta(\tau) = \pm \frac{1}{16}\Omega(\frac{\tau + 1}{2})\Omega(\frac{\tau}{2})( \overline{\rho}\Omega(\frac{\tau + 1}{2}) + \rho\Omega((\frac{\tau}{2})).

(b) \Delta(\tau) = \pm \left ( \frac{1}{16}\Omega(\frac{\tau + 1}{2})^2\Omega(\frac{\tau}{2})^2 - 16\frac{h_1 (\tau)^2}{ \Omega (\frac{\tau}{2}) \Omega(\frac{\tau + 1}{2})} \right ).
