# Tianyi Mao : Modular Forms and Additive Number Theory

Abstract: Modular forms, a kind of SL2(Z)-invariant holomorphic functions defined on the upper half plane, are one of the most important objects studied in modern number theory. This talk will start from the basic definitions of modular forms and give some examples and important theorems associated with Eisenstein series. Finally we will use the power of modular forms to solve some classical problems on partitions of integers in additive number theory, including the Ramanujan congruence and sums of squares.
