Towards a single-valued map at genus one

Closed string amplitudes at genus one can be described in terms of modular graph forms. These real-analytic functions with definite transformation properties under SL(2,$\mathbb{Z}$) can be represented either as lattice sums over world-sheet torus momenta or as configuration space integrals. It is convenient to package them into a generating series involving Kronecker-Eisenstein series and a Koba-Nielsen factor. The generating series can be shown to satisfy a differential equation that contains a (conjectural) matrix representation of Tsunogai's derivation algebra and whose formal solution involves iterated Eisenstein integrals as studied by Brown. The closed string differential equation can be viewed as a single-valued version of a corresponding open string equation and, together with the input of the genus zero single-valued map in the form of initial conditions, this suggests a candidate genus one single-valued map.
