Course Description and Grading Breakdown The purpose of this course is to introduce certain basic aspects of the theory of Automorphic forms by looking at the simplest case, namely the multiplicative group of a division quaternion algebra. We will discuss rudiments of Zeta functions, trace formula, and special points on certain associated curves. True to the nature of the field, the arguments will be in parts analytic, algebraic and geometric.Tuesday and Thursday 10:30 - 11:55 am 104 Math Building (Building 15) Course Instructor Contact Information and Office Hours 256 West Bridge Office Hours - Wednesdays 4 - 5 pm TA Contact Information and Office Hours Course Schedule and Textbook

* You may use a computer or calculator while doing the homework, but may not refer to this as justification for your work. For example, "by Mathematica" is not an acceptable justification for deriving one equation from another. Also, since computers and calculators will not be allowed on the exams, it's best not to get too dependent on them. |
