The theory of elliptic curves has been the source of new approaches to
classical problems in number theory, which have also found applications in
cryptography. This volume represents the proceedings of the Advanced
Instructional Workshop on Algebraic Number Theory held at the Harish-Chandra
Research Institute. The theme of the workshop was algebraic number theory with
special emphasis on elliptic curves.

The volume is in three parts, the first part contains articles in the field
of elliptic curves, the second contains articles on modular forms. The third
part presents some basics on cryptography, as well as some advanced topics.
Each part contains an introduction, which, in some sense, gives the overall
picture of the contents of that part. Most of the articles are presented in a
self-contained style and they give a different flavor to the subject. In some
cases, the authors have chosen to include material that is already available in
textbooks in order to make this volume more complete. Graduate students who
want to pursue their research career in number theory will benefit from this
volume.

The book is suitable for graduate students and researchers in number theory
and applications to cryptography.
