Jaclyn Lang
I am a fourth year in the mathematics Ph.D. program at UCLA. I am interested in algebraic number theory, especially Galois representations and modular forms. My adviser is Haruzo Hida. You can find a copy of my CV here.
STUDENTS! Office hours for MATH 61 are held in MS 6603, NOT MS 5351K, on Tuesdays from 9:50-10:50am. The course webpage can be found here.

UCLA number theory group
The number theory group at UCLA has two seminars: the participating seminar and the research seminar. Here are some notes I wrote for my talk on abelian varieties. They are based on sections four and five of Mumford's book.

Resouces for undergraduates and high school students
- Here is a list of lots of cool opportunities for undergraduates to study math.
- When I was a PROMYS counselor, I gave a lecture for high school students about p-adics. Here are the notes for that.
- I gave a talk about absolute values and p-adic numbers to the high school group of the Los Angeles Math Circle. Here are the worksheets associated with that. This is related to the above set of notes.
