Lectures: Tuesday 12h-14h, Friday 10h-12h; Exercise sessions: Friday 16h-18h.
The aim of the course is to introduce the basic theory of modular forms and related topics. We will talk about the definition of modular forms, their q-expansions, Hecke operators, L-functions, and modular curves. If time permits, we shall talk about Maass forms and automorphic forms for GL_2. Basic knowledge of complex analysis is requested.
