Topic: An introduction to classical modular forms


Place: Room 614 in the Education & Sciences Building

Time: 14:00

Date: Tuesday, November 13, 2018




We describe some famous results of Jacobi, Ramanujan, Mordell and Hecke in the theory of modular forms.

We will briefly mention a new result joint with Soma Purkait on the classification of new forms which were defined by Atkin and Lehner.

We do not assume any knowledge of modular forms.



Tea will be served before the talk (at 13:50).
