Number Theory

The interests of the Number Theory group are centred on modular forms, automorphic representations and their congruences, Galois representations and their modularity, elliptic curves, arithmetic algebraic geometry, and the Bloch-Kato conjecture on values of L-functions. See the staff pages below for further details.

Prospective postgraduates should note that a strong student with a good all-round knowledge of undergraduate pure mathematics would still need to do large amounts of preparatory reading to begin with. Their work is likely to have as much to do with algebraic geometry, algebraic topology, analytic functions and representation theory as with undergraduate courses on elementary number theory.
