"Semisimplicity and the Hopkins--Levitski Theorem"

This semester we'll be meeting weekly to learn more about ring theory, mostly going through Lam's two books --- there are many interesting results in those books which will be "good to know". Starting off, we'll aim to learn the Hopkins--Levitski Theorem, one of whose (many) consequences is that the descending chain condition implies the ascending chain condition. Everyone is welcome. See you there!

"Congruence subgroups and examples of forms that are modular with respect to these subgroups"

This week, we will look at the definition of cusp forms, and consider the most famous example of the cusp form of weight 12, which is the discriminant function. Afterwords, we shall move to the discussion of congruence subgroups, and will look at forms that are modular with respect to particular congruence subgroups.
