The (p, k)-parametrization of theta functions introduced by the authors is usedto prove some new theta function identities from which formulae for the number ofrepresentations of a positive integer by each of the sextenary quadratic forms. x2 1+x2 2+x2 3+x2 4+x2 5+3x2 6, x2 1+x2 2+x2 3+3x2 4+3x2 5+3x2 6 and x2 1+3x2 2+3x2 3+3x2 4+3x2 5+3x2 6 are deduced.
