Computing With Modular Forms


L-series of elliptic curve of rank 2

Each project will involve a combination of:
  1. Understanding and explaining the theory,
  2. Improving the (best-known) relevant algorithms,
  3. Analyzing the theoretical complexity of relevant algorithms,
  4. Implementing algorithms in SAGE,
  5. Improving / auditing existing implementations.
