Brief Introduction to Modular Forms

We'll talk about a tentative plan for the semester and also give some brief remarks about modular forms such as what they are and why people care about them.

Modular Forms and Modular Curves

We will define modular forms with respect to congruence subgroups and introduce modular curves, which are Riemann surfaces associated to each congruence subgroup, defining cusps and elliptic points along the way. The goal of the talk is to find a formula for the genus of the modular curve. The material will mostly follow up to section 3.1 in Diamond and Shurman's A First Course in Modular Forms but other good references include the books by Shimura and Lang and Serre's Course in Arithmetic.

Bases Away From Cusps

We will present bases for spaces of modular forms non-vanishing at all cusps for several congruence subgroups.
