We will cover an introduction to adelic automorphic forms, using the references below. We will assume some algebraic number theory.

- Meetings: Wednesdays 14:00-15:30 at MATH 126 (except 11/9 at MATX 1102)
- Graduate students can take the seminar for credit by signing up for MATH 592A, section 101.
- Organizational meeting Thursday September 5th, 12:30 at MATX 1118.
