This volume presents the proceedings of an international conference held at Seoul National University (Korea). Talks covered recent developments in diverse areas related to the theory of integral quadratic forms and hermitian forms, local densities, linear relations and congruences of theta series, zeta functions of prehomogeneous vector spaces, lattices with maximal finite matrix groups, globally irreducible lattices, Mordell-Weil lattices, and more.

Articles in the volume represent expository lectures by leading experts on recent developments in the field. The book offers a comprehensive introduction to the current state of knowledge in the arithmetic theory of quadratic forms and provides active directions of research with new results. Topics addressed in the volume emphasize connections with related fields, such as group theory, arithmetic geometry, analytic number theory, and modular forms. The book is an excellent introductory guide for students as well as a rich reference source for researchers.


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in number theory; computer scientists; information specialists.
