Topics: In this course, assuming basic knowledge of complex analysis, we describe basics of elliptic modular forms. We hope to cover the following four topics:
Related topics may be touched upon in Math 290B student seminar on Wednesdays at 4:00pm-5:50pm in MS 5138 and possibly Mondays at 4:00pm-5:50pm in MS 5117 when number theory research seminar is not scheduled on the day (students are encouraged to attend).
Good understanding of commutative and non-commutative algebra, complex analysis (for Riemann surfaces) and algebraic number theory.
