Text: Topics in Classical Automorphic Forms by Henryk Iwaniecz
Prerequisite: introductory number theory and at least a one semester course in complex analysis.
Course description: The theory of automorphic forms is a particularly important area of number theory with many links to algebraic geometry, real and complex analysis, partial differential equations etc. Automorphic forms were discovered in the XIXth century in connection With elliptic integrals and the representation number of quadratic forms among modern applications we and the proof of Fermat's Last Theorem and sphere packings in high dimension. In the course students are expected to read some Chapters of Iwaniec's book titled Topics in Classical AutoŚ morphic Forms.
