Magma (distributed at the U. Sydney) is a software designed for computations in algebra, number theory,
and arithmetic geometry. In this talk, we will introduce Magma and extensive projects with packages we
created (or collaborated) with short demos.

In this talk, we introduce the new approach how to use an orthonormality relation
of coecients of Dirichlet series de ning given L-functions from the Selberg class to
prove joint universality (joint work with Yoonbok Lee, Lukasz Pankowski).

Zagier exhibited an indentity between meromorphic functions as a generalization of the Eichler-Selberg
trace formula for elliptic modular forms. Later, Jacquet and Zagier described such a kind of trace formula
with complex parameter for adelic GL(2), containing abstractness of its spectral and geometric terms. In
this talk, we give a generalization of Zagier's formula to the case of holomorphic Hilbert modular forms
in a new way. As applications, we discuss an equidistribution result for Hecke eigenvalues of Hilbert

Let $N$ be an odd square-free integer. We give a Hecke isomorphism map from the space of Jacobi cusp new forms of level $1$ and index $N$ satisfying a certain condition into the space of Jacobi cusp new forms of level $N$, index $1$ and the character after reviewing about some known properties of level-index changing operators.

By the work of R. Borcherds we know the Fourier coefficients of the elliptic modular $j$-function are closely related
to the Monster group. As a new perspective, M. Kaneko gave an arithmetic formula for the Fourier coefficients expressed
in terms of the traces of the CM values of the $j$-function in 1996. In this talk, we consider analogues of this formula for
the McKay-Thompson series. Our main result is an explicit formula for the coefficients expressed in terms of the CM
values of certain hauptmoduln. Furthermore, we give some applications.

In this talk, we give a proof of a special case of the generalized cyclic insertion conjecture on the MZVs, which was formulated by Steven Charlton in his thesis. The conjecture is stated in terms of the block notation for MZVs introduced by himself. Charlton's conjecture is a broad generalization of several long unproven families of identities such as Borwein-Bradley-Broadhurst-Lisoněk's cyclic insertion conjecture and certain conjectural identities posed by Hoffman.

By the classical theory of complex multiplication, the Klein $j$-invariant takes algebraic
values at CM points. In their seminal work on singular moduli, Gross and Zagier gave a
factorization of the difference between two such values, which can be viewed as the exponential
of a special value of a Green's function on the upper half plane. From numerical computations,
they conjectured that the special values of certain higher Green's functions also enjoy similar
algebraicity property. We will revisit this conjecture and discuss some recent progress.

The aim of this talk is to report a recent research on explicit constructions of cusp forms on orthogonal groups of split rank one or two by some lifts from cusp forms on the complex upper half plane. We also discuss cuspidal representations generated by them in terms of the explicit determination of their local components. As for the representation theoretic treatment, the point is to use Sugano’s non-archimedean local theory of ``Jacobi form formulation” of Oda-Rallis-Schiffman lifting to orthogonal groups of rank two.

On the Miyawaki lifts of hermitian modular forms

We construct a lifting from a elliptic modular cusp form f and a hermitian modular cusp
form g of degree r to a hermitian modular cusp form of degree n + r. This lift is the
so-called Miyawaki lift. When f and g are "Hecke eigenforms", its lift is also a "Hecke eigenform"
(if it is not identically zero). Moreover, we determine explicitly the standard L-function and
A-parameter associated to the Miyawaki lift.

The Hermitian modular group of degree $n$ over an imaginary quadratic field
$K=\mathbb{Q}(\sqrt{-m})$ was introduced by Hel Braun in the 1940s
as an analogue for the well known Siegel modular group. It acts on the
Hermitian half space and the accociated Hermitian modular forms have
been studied thoroughly in the past. However, this talk does not concentrate
on the modular forms but on the modular group itself. For $n=2$ and $m \neq 1,3$,
$m$ squarefree, we will prove that the Hermitian modular group $U(2,2;\mathcal{O}_K)$,
