Max Planck Institute for Mathematics, BonnSummer School (May 15-19) Conference (May 22-26)
Modular forms are omnipresent in mathematics. Recently they have even turned up in the study of black holes and string theory. Their presence usually indicates a deep underlying structure teeming with symmetry.
In the first week, there will be a school for advanced students which is immediately followed by a research conference in the second week. These activities will focus on the many facets of modular forms, especially those related to the work of Don Zagier, a giant in the theory of modular forms.
