Abstract: We introduce an elliptic analogue of the Apostol sums, which we call elliptic Apostol sums. These sums are defined by means of certain elliptic functions with a complex parameter $\tau$ having positive imaginary part. When $\tau\to i\infty$, these elliptic Apostol sums represent the well-known Apostol generalized Dedekind sums. Also these elliptic Apostol sums are modular forms in the variable $\tau$. We obtain a reciprocity law for these sums, which gives rise to new relations between certain modular forms (of one variable).
