Mahler measures of elliptic modular surfaces

Abstract : In this article we develop a new method for relating Mahler measures of three-variable polynomials that define elliptic modular surfaces to L-values of modular forms. Using an idea of Deninger, we express the Mahler measure as a Deligne period of the surface and then apply the first author's extension of the Rogers-Zudilin method for Kuga-Sato varieties, to arrive at an L-value.
