The double zeta values are defined for integers \(r\geq 2,s\geq 1,\) by \( \zeta(r,s)=\sum_{m>n>0}m^{-r}n^{-s}\). The present paper gives various interesting relations among double zeta values, e.g., \[ 28\zeta(9,3)+150\zeta(7,5)+168\zeta(5,7)={5197\over 691}\zeta(12). \] It is shown that the structure of the \(Q\)-vector space of all relations among double zeta values of fixed weight \(k=r+s\) is connected with the structure of the space of modular forms of weight \(k\) on the full modular group (as indicated by the appearance of \(691\) in the formula above). Moreover, the authors introduce both transcendental and combinatorial double Eisenstein series in order to study the relations between double zeta values and modular forms.
