Number Theory Seminar - Winter 2021

p-adic Modular Forms and p-adic L-functions

I organised an online seminar on p-adic modular forms and p-adic L-functions at Columbia University. It is focused on the theory of p-adic modular forms. It is mostly arithmetically inclined but the geometric point of view is still relevant. Some topics included (in no particular order) are : Hida families, p-adic L-functions, overconvergent modular forms, Iwasawa theory, Stark-Heegner points and computational aspects of the theory.
