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.
