Madhava Lecture Hall and Online

Over the past few decades, the interface of number theory and physics, especially string theory has led to important physical and mathematical advancements. Techniques in number theory are a vital knowhow in the toolkit of a modern mathematical physicist. In these lectures, we shall go over some of these topics from the basics. These topics could include automorphic forms, L-functions and elliptic curves. We will then see how these different topics play a role in physics. (Some examples include BPS state counts and the attractor mechanism, wall crossing phenomena, moonshine, rational CFT, generalized Hilbert-Polya problems, quantum chaos).
