Description

This workshop, sponsored by AIM, EPSRC, and the NSF, will introduce participants to the L-functions and Modular Forms Database (LMFDB) as a tool for research and teaching.

The LMFDB contains a wealth of information on L-functions, modular forms of several types, elliptic curves and genus 2 curves, number fields, and much more. In addition to detailed information about individual objects, the LMFDB also includes information about connections between objects, including the connections described by the Langlands Program.

The workshop will involve a mixture of demonstrations, explorations, discussions about mathematical content, and discussions about the future of the LMFDB.
