# Number Theory 3: Iwasawa Theory and Modular Forms

Share this page
*Nobushige Kurokawa; Masato Kurihara; Takeshi Saito*

This is the third of three related volumes on
number theory. (The first two volumes were also published in the
Iwanami Series in Modern Mathematics, as volumes 186 and 240.)

The two main topics of this book are Iwasawa theory and modular
forms. The presentation of the theory of modular forms starts with
several beautiful relations discovered by Ramanujan and leads to a
discussion of several important ingredients, including the
zeta-regularized products, Kronecker's limit formula, and the Selberg
trace formula. The presentation of Iwasawa theory focuses on the
Iwasawa main conjecture, which establishes far-reaching relations
between a \(p\)-adic analytic zeta function and a determinant defined
from a Galois action on some ideal class groups. This book also
contains a short exposition on the arithmetic of elliptic curves and
the proof of Fermat's last theorem by Wiles.

Together with the first two volumes, this book is a good resource
for anyone learning or teaching modern algebraic number theory.
