Gandalf (Pure Maths Student Seminar): A Theta Lift in SL(2,1) and Locally Harmonic Maass Forms
27 February 2014 16:00 in CM219
Modular forms of integral weight and half integral weight have many interesting applications in number theory. Shimura in 1973 defined a very important correspondence between the two which can be defined in the framework of theta lifts. More recently harmonic weak Maass forms (generalisations of classical modular forms) and their uses have been studied. In this talk I will discuss these objects and their properties and describe my work on a theta lift which links all of them together.
Gandalf is the pure maths student seminar. Gandalf stands for the Geometry AND ALgebra Forum. It is run by and for pure postgraduates, but welcomes anyone who is interested in coming along.
Content from previous talks is available at the gandalf seminar home page.
