MAGIC: Modular Forms (MAGIC049) 
GeneralDescription
Modular forms (and automorphic forms/representations) play an increasingly
central role in modern number theory, but also in other branches of mathematics
and even in physics. This course gives an introduction to the subject.
Here is a sample of topics we plan to cover:

Bibliography
Clicking on the link for a book will take you to the relevant Google Book Search page. You may be able to preview the book there. On the right hand side you will see links to places where you can buy the book. There is also link marked 'Find this book in a library'. This sometimes works well, but not always. (You will need to enter your location, but it will be saved after you do that for the first time.) AssessmentThere will be two homework assignments which both need to be passed satisfactorily.
HW1: Due March 9
HW2: Due April 13
