Modular Forms are Everywhere: Celebration of Don Zagier's 65th Birthday

Research in the Mathematical Sciences welcomes submissions to an article collection relating to the Modular Forms are Everywhere: Celebration of Don Zagier's 65th Birthday.

The appearance of modular forms in many branches of mathematics is frequent and often even seems unreasonable at first glance. For decades Don Zagier has been one of the world's leading researchers in the field, unveiling the why and how of such connections. In this quest he never hesitates to plunge into areas of mathematics that are new to him. This special collection brings together contemporary researchers in these areas. Their purpose is to continue the quest of giving reasonable explanations for the ubiquity of modular forms. The authors in this collection honor Zagier's limitless enthusiasm, curiosity and stream of new insights that have paved the way.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Number Theory
  • Modular Forms

Deadline for submissions: 1 January 2018

Lead Editor: Ken Ono, Emory University

Guest Editor: Kathrin Bringmann, Cologne University

Guest Editor: Maxim Kontsevich, Institute des Hautes Etudes Scientifiques

Guest Editor: Pieter Moree, Max Planck Institute for Mathematics

Guest Editor: Martin Westerholt-Raum, Chalmers University
