Modular forms and L-functions are central objects in modern number theory, which played an important role in the proof of Fermat's Last Theorem. They are certain complex functions encoding information of number-theoretic interest, e.g., about the distribution of prime numbers, or numbers of solutions of diophantine equations. Combining analytic and algebraic methods, the course will cover their basic properties and some applications. Specific choice of topics will depend on the interests of participants.
