Abstract: A system of modular equations of norm 2 had been found for the Hilbert modular function field of $ {\mathbf{Q}}(\sqrt 2 )$ in an earlier issue of this journal. Here an analogous system is found for $ {\mathbf{Q}}(\sqrt 3 )$ but with the help of MACSYMA. There are special difficulties in the fact that two spaces of Hilbert modular functions exist for $ {\mathbf{Q}}(\sqrt 3 )$ that can be interchanged by the modular equations. The equations are also a remarkable example of hidden symmetries in the algebraic manifold $ {{\mathbf{V}}_2}$ which is defined in $ {{\mathbf{C}}^4}$ by the modular equation.
