Advanced School and Workshop on L-functions and modular forms
Month: September 2014
Date: September 1--12
Name: Advanced School and Workshop on L-functions and modular forms
Location: The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste, Italy.
This two-week activity consists of a school on aspects of computational algebra and number theory with an emphasis on modular forms and L-functions in the first week and a more focused workshop on the same theme in the second week. The school is intended for advanced graduate students and young researchers. During the school there will be lectures on both theoretical and computational aspects of algebra and number theory, including a general introduction to scientific computing. The afternoons will be devoted to concrete hands-on computational projects. The workshop in the second week will also have a computational bent, being part of the research project LMF: L-functions and Modular Forms (a six year Programme Grant from EPSRC, grant reference EP/K034383/1). The High Performance Computing staff at ICTP will take part of the workshop with the goal of helping the interested participants make the jump from desktops to bigger machines.
