Seminar on Modular Forms
In the Spring Semester of 2013, we (Pinar Kilicer and Dino Festi) are organizing a seminar on Modular Forms. Currently, our plan is to come together every Thursday afternoon, starting April 11.
Content
This seminar is meant to be introductory and indeed we will start form the basic definitions. The final aim of this seminar is to illustrate the result "All rational elliptic curves arise from modular forms".
