# Lectures on Hilbert Modular Varieties and Modular Forms

A co-publication of the AMS and Centre de Recherches Mathématiques

This book is devoted to certain aspects of the theory of \(p\)-adic
Hilbert modular forms and moduli spaces of abelian varieties with real
multiplication.

The theory of \(p\)-adic modular forms is presented first in the
elliptic case, introducing the reader to key ideas of N. M. Katz and J.-P.
Serre. It is re-interpreted from a geometric point of view, which is developed
to present the rudiments of a similar theory for Hilbert modular forms.

The theory of moduli spaces of abelian varieties with real multiplication is
presented first very explicitly over the complex numbers. Aspects of the
general theory are then exposed, in particular, local deformation theory of
abelian varieties in positive characteristic.

The arithmetic of \(p\)-adic Hilbert modular forms and the geometry
of moduli spaces of abelian varieties are related. This relation is used to
study \(q\)-expansions of Hilbert modular forms, on the one hand, and
stratifications of moduli spaces on the other hand.

The book is addressed to graduate students and non-experts. It attempts to
provide the necessary background to all concepts exposed in it. It may serve as
a textbook for an advanced graduate course.

Titles in this series are co-published with the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques.
